Nippon Express Company, Ltd. was founded in 1872 under the name of Moto Kaisha Riku. In 1937 it was re-established as a semi-governmental transportation company.

In1950 Nippon Express is no longer a government company and it became private.

Thus, for over a century, Nippon Express has played a vital role in the economical development and improved people's quality of life, leading the Japanese shipping industry. In other to meet the increasing demand on the international carriage of Japanese companies, Nippon Express created its own global network in 1958 and opened its first representative office in New York.

In 1981, Nippon Express (UK) Limited was founded in United Kingdom, establishing  Head Quarters in London, becoming the 2nd subsiduary based in Europe.
