Commodities We Handle
People and companies ship all kinds of commodities from Japan but besides personal effects, we often handle shipments of : electric appliances, Japan-made pieces of furniture such as tansu and dining tables, audio equipment, musical instruments, used vinyl(analogue) records, massage chairs, express documents, figurines/statues etc etc. We also help Japanese shops ship the goods which their international customers purchased.
To ship/export from Japan, commercial invoice and packing list describing the contents will be required for custom clearance purposes. In some cases, further information on the commodities is required (Catalogue of the goods or URL of the commodity being shipped will normally do). Please note that in some cases, shipments may be inspected by the customs at the time of customs clearance.
Discount shipping rates by LCL(Less-than-Container-Load) shipments are available to most major destinations around the world. If shipping by air, there are more destinations than the destinations for personal effects because there are many airlines who do not handle personal effect shipments. As we reiterate on this website, it is recommended to ship by air if your shipment is not very large or heavy as it will be more cost efficient.
Experience and Knowledge Count
When it comes to shipping from Japan, experience an knowledge do count. There are, in fact, all kinds of commodities in the universe and it is necessary to be aware of regulations for particular commodities and what customs requirements are. Japan is quite unique in this sense because customs is rather strict at the time of export customs clearance and one must meet the Japanese customs requirement which is quite different depending on the commodity being shipped.
It is our mission at Japan Luggage Express to help your organization grow internationally. We look forward to demonstrating our superb level of service.
Rates for general cargo (commercial cargo) are different from those for personal effects. For more information in English, please contact Mr. Yasu Shimizu.
