Tokyo Freight Terminal (東京貨物ターミナル駅 Tōkyō Kamotsu Tāminaru Eki) is a railway freight terminal operated by Japan Freight Railway Company (JR Freight) located in the Yashio district of Shinagawa, Tokyo, east of Omori and north of Haneda Airport. It opened on October 1, 1973.
It is the largest rail freight terminal in Japan and principally handles freight traffic to and from western Japan via the Tōkaidō Main Line. A number of companies operate dedicated logistics facilities at the station, including Yamato Transport, Sagawa Express, Nippon Express, and Kintetsu World Express.
The terminal is adjacent to the Tōkaidō Shinkansen Tokyo Depot. The closest passenger station is Ryūtsū Center Station on the Tokyo Monorail. The branch line on which the terminal is situated also originally extended from Tokyo Freight Terminal up to the Shiodome Freight Terminal (the site of the original Shimbashi Station) until its closure in 1986.
