Methods of shipping.

When it is about shipping your vehicle, there are two ways of doing it. The first method is the container method wherein your vehicle is enclosed in a closed container, along with all the accessories. You can store your other goods within the container or have the option of sharing space with other individual’s cars, if you need to lower the cost.

In the Roll-on and Roll-Off method or the RORO way to ship is to harness the vehicle on the deck, bereft of accessories except the presence of car jack, floor mats, and a spare tire. It is rolled on at the departure port and rolled off at the port of delivery. This is the cheapest way to ship.

Vehicle Import procedures.

As per the Japanese regulations, if you need to ship your vehicle for less than a year, different rules are applicable under Temporary Import. The most important document is the CPD or the ‘Carnet de Passage en Douane’, which is the ownership identification documents and you need to have it with you always. The JAF or Japan Automobile Federation requires this document along with other paperwork to get the vehicle registered in your name in Osaka.

In case, you need to have your car or vehicle in Osaka for over a year, you need to import it under permanent import and require completing detailed paperwork. You will be required to send in the documents pertaining to vehicle ownership, insurance, Bill of Lading and other registration documents. Custom duties will need to be paid at the time of arrival at the Osaka port apart from other local taxes. An important prerequisite of importing cars is clearing the emission tests by the local transport authorities and then you can get the car’s ownership and registration completed. To know more about it, check the latest at Japan Automobile Federation.
