Approach Japan With Insight

Be Digital in a Paper World

While technologically advanced, Japan often insists on paper documents in business and shipping. Flexport can seamlessly combine digital and paper workflows.

Beware Extreme Events

In addition to typhoon season from May to October, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and tsunamis are known risks that require agile in-country partners.

Customs Can Be Extra Complex

Japan keeps tight control of its borders, sometimes layering in unfamiliar customs procedures. Flexport’s technology and customs brokers minimize surprises.

Grow Your Japan Trade Strategy

Japan, famous as an exporter, is also a robust importer of a wide range of products. Use Flexport’s platform to take full advantage of all Japan offers your supply chain.
