How To Buy
Starting your order
Once you decide to start a new order, select those items that you need and add them to your cart. If you are interested in items that are not available in stock, you can make an order request so as soon stock will be available will be booked for you.
At the moment that some items are added into your cart, kindly we will need to receive a deposit corresponding to the approximately 50% of the total amount of the container.
In this step, you can request a proforma invoice with the booked items or with the amount that you desire to transfer.
The deposit has been confirmed so it is time to proceed to the container booking and gather those items that you requested.
Please, register your consignee and notify party information. Also, kindly place a booking for your container and inform us about the booking number and freight details. In case you want us to arrange the ocean freight, you can consult our last quotations in the Ocean Freight table.
As soon as the container will be loaded, you will find all the corresponding documents available in the “container status” section, including the Final Invoice, the Packing List, the loading pictures, and the current Account statement. Please, proceed to complete the payment of the container before the shipment will depart from the Japanese port. Once the payment has been completed and the shipment depart from Japan, we will also prepare the Bill of Lading and upload it into your “container status” section.
