Customs Clearance

Offering Appropriate and Speedy Customs Clearance Based on Compliance

Import or export of cargo must be granted clearance by declaring the content and quantity of cargo to customs. We excel at this complicated customs clearance process. We have been granted customs clearing authorization by six commissioners of customs across Japan. Our customs clearing professionals led by registered customs specialists deliver swift and effective customs clearing based on compliance requirements. In 2017, we received certification as an Authorized Customs Broker under the AEO* programme.
