Dubbed "Super-Railcargo", the M250 series made its debut in March 2004 on Takaido Main, a major logistical artery in Japan. As the first multi-engine container express train for JR Freight, the M250 series makes the daily round trip between Tokyo and Osaka in just 6 hours and 10 minutes one way. The train carries 28 units of the 31-foot U54A container in a livery dedicated to Sagawa Kyubin, a major parcel delivery company in Japan, in a 12-car configuration. Importantly, the M250 series was also developed with that goal in mind to reduce the CO2 pollution of the air from high-speed freight transport. It is expected to reduce around 14,000 tons of CO2 in the air annually.
