The Complexities of Importing into Japan
Japan is an extremely sought-after destination for both Western and Eastern Cloud companies with numerous industry giants having datacentres located here. There are also several companies such as NTT who have headquarters located here. With particular HS codes requiring additional compliance, Japanese compliance requirements can be a challenge. Other factors that must be considered include the final delivery address. In some cases, distance from the capital can result in higher freight costs.
