Smart Import®

Recommended
if you:

Want to reduce lead time from outside Japan
Want to streamline tasks in Japan

If you use this service of integrated logistics from plants outside Japan to destinations in Japan, we perform the following tasks before bringing the products to Japan, not in Japan as we traditionally do: inspection; confirmation that the products are free of leftover needles; sorting the products by store; and issuance and affixation of price tags and invoices. You can save import duties on defective products and skip distribution centers in Japan, optimizing physical distribution costs and reducing lead time.

Key point1

Delivery slips for delivery in Japan are affixed to the goods before they arrive in Japan so that they can be readied for direct delivery through Sagawa Express’s delivery network.

Key point2

Freight from multiple plants can be consolidated into a single container for multimodal transport to a specified port.

Key point3

With a bonded area function, we can offer buyer’s consolidation at an even higher level.

We help Japanese online retailers deliver merchandise to customers outside Japan.
