DOCOMO Adds Easy Storage Pick-up Service to its d living Service Lineup

- Invests in trunk inc. through subsidiary DOCOMO Ventures -

TOKYO, Feb, 07 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - NTT DOCOMO, INC. and its wholly owned subsidiary NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc. announced today that they have invested in trunk inc., the creator of easy storage pick-up service "trunk".

DOCOMO started providing "d living" services under the concept of providing a "safe and comfortable lifestyle at a reasonable price" in July 2016, and added "trunk" to its service lineup in September 2017. In addition to regular daily-life and housekeeping support services, d living members (monthly fee: 450 yen before tax) can now use one box for free through "trunk" (Monthly fee: 500 yen before tax).

Until now, using "trunk" required downloading a dedicated app(1), however from January 31, 2018, users can access the service by visiting the d living website on their PC or smartphone.

DOCOMO also plans to work with trunk inc. to make "trunk" compatible with its other services such as d ACCOUNT, d POINT and DOCOMO payment services.

Going forward, DOCOMO will continue collaborating with its business partners to create convenient services that revolutionize customers' lifestyles as part of its "Declaration beyond" medium-term strategy.

(1) Please note that certain functions still require downloading the dedicated application.
