From this month (October), the business scope of Japanese taxis has been officially relaxed. In addition to transporting passengers, takeaway has become a permanent business in Japan’s taxi industry. Nakagawa, a 25-year-old taxi driver in Yokohama, has been in the business for three years. On the day of the interview, he received a message from the company’s dispatcher on his way to receive a takeaway from a local restaurant and deliver it. < / P > < p > after the handover between Nakagawa and the store, the takeout food is put into the incubator according to the regulations. In order to avoid the distortion of the takeout, the customers will use the safety belt to fix the eel food on the takeout. About half an hour later, he arrived at the designated place and delivered the takeaway to the customer. Japanese taxi driver Nakamura Nakagawa: the number of passengers per day may be less than half of that before the epidemic. Now when empty, you can send a delivery of takeaway. I feel that the income is also more secure. It is understood that when Nakagawa delivers a takeout, his company will charge customers a delivery fee of at least 2000 yen, about 128 yuan, depending on the distance. However, the company does not disclose how much Nakagawa can get from it. Affected by the epidemic situation, the income of Japanese taxi enterprises has dropped sharply since this year, and some places have even learned to hire drivers. In order to improve the operation of the industry, Japan’s Ministry of land and transportation began to temporarily allow taxis to engage in catering and distribution business in April this year. As of September, more than 1700 taxi companies, including the enterprise affiliated to Nakagawa, have obtained relevant licenses, more than one fourth of the total number of Japanese taxi companies. In this context, the Ministry of land and communications announced that the temporary measures will be permanent, officially relaxing the business scope of Japanese taxis. Xiaoguan Zhenghe, head of Publicity Department of a Japanese taxi company, said: through participating in new business such as delivery and delivery, the company’s revenue began to recover slowly, which can reach 70% to 80% of that before the epidemic. We are also planning to “rent plus catering” as the selling point of new services, hoping to become a new growth point. < / P > < p > due to the differences in obtaining external subsidies among taxi companies, there is a big difference in delivery costs. According to the reporter’s investigation, taking the distribution distance of 30 minutes’ drive as an example, the cost of each company is equivalent to RMB 58 to 195 yuan. < / P > < p > consumer: Taxi delivery costs two or three thousand yen a time, which is still very expensive. Unless you may use it when you invite friends to dinner at home, you should not use it when you eat by yourself. Due to the decrease of population, the taxi industry in Japan is in a state of saturation. Previously, Japan has been separating passenger transport from freight transport in principle. The opening of takeaway distribution business has brought new growth potential to the taxi industry. It is expected that more taxi companies will enter this field in the future.
