Port-to-port shipping times

Following are the port to port transit times from Japan (Tokyo/Yokohama) i.e., the time it takes from when the vessel (or the container) leaves its port of origin in Japan to when it reaches its final destination port/terminal. If you are shipping from Japan, for most destinations around the world weekly services are available but depending on the destination, the service may be semi-weekly or bi-weekly. A shipment must be cleared through Japanese customs approximately six to ten days prior to departure of the ship. Therefore, the door-to-port shipping time will be about thirteen to seventeen days longer than the port-to-port transit time. In addition, it takes at least a few days to unload the shipments from the container and be delivered to the terminal, so it will be at least a few days later that anything can be done about the shipment after its arrival at the destination. It is also important to note that these are for reference purposes only and the transit times are not guaranteed by Japan Luggage Express or carriers.
As you will notice, port-to-port transit times themselves are short nowadays.

Once again, the above transit times exclude the time needed to process shipments on the Japan side such as customs clearance.
There may be cases where vessels omit ports in Japan to recover delay or delay may be caused by bad weather.
Depending on the departure dates of ships and the time we receive necessary documents in order, it may take much more days.
