What to know when shipping to/from Japan

When shipping to Japan, the customers DGX - Dependable Global Express handles are driven by the need for shipping accuracy, the quickest/fastest time to destination and the quality of how the merchandise looks. Your items arriving in Japan have to look “untouched,” like they are brand new and have not been handled multiple times in the shipping process.

Knowing which carrier to use and which service to use are extremely important since this ultimately determines your time to destination. DGX customers have high expectations when it comes to shipping timeline accuracy and any deviation from the initial schedule is unacceptable to many customers.

What makes DGX different in how we do things?

First, we offer both full container load (FCL), and less than container load (LCL) services to a multitude of destinations in Japan. FCL's can be offered to virtually any destination in Japan that can be reached by road once discharged from the ocean carrier. Our LCL service includes direct containers weekly to three ports, routed to the ultimate cargo destination. Our weekly LCL service includes following base ports in Japan: Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kobe and Osaka.

Our Japan office monitors these containers daily to ensure timely releases from our carriers and we strive to distribute the cargo to our customers/consignees in the fastest, most efficient manner available.

We stay focused on finding shipping solutions to our customers; we don't just arrange to ship.
Dependable. From Start to Finish.
