I. Import process from Japan to Malaysia via Janbox

You placed an order from Japan but wondered whether it was delivered or not and where your pack is?  Yes, we know that ordering Japanese goods from a distance of 5137km is really stressful. So we’ll go over how your package is shipped from Japan to Malaysia via Janbox. Let’s get started with the first of five steps.


1. Search for an exporter

We all enjoy receiving gifts. And there was almost certainly a time when each of us needed to send a gift to a friend, a commodity to a customer, or documents to a business partner. Unfortunately, the shipping process is not always easy. Sometimes you have to go searching for and comparing information to see who is willing to provide the cheapest or fastest delivery service, and other times you are plagued by doubts about whether it is truly a secure delivery.

Stop struggling, because Janbox can get you covered.

Purchasing from a Japanese online store is typically difficult for those who do not live in Japan and do not speak Japanese. It is difficult to navigate a common Japanese website or communicate with a seller if you do not speak Japanese. Second, some online marketplaces refuse to accept credit cards and only accept bank transfers. Credit cards issued outside of Japan are also not accepted in some cases. Finally, most Japanese online marketplaces and eBay sellers do not ship internationally.

Janbox’s buying-proxy service was designed to address these and other issues that may arise when purchasing items from Japan. We are delighted to become your one-stop Japanese shopping cart, where you can add items from any Japanese online marketplaces and auctions.

2. Send the goods information to Janbox Express

To ensure your package is successfully delivered, you must provide Janbox Express with enough information to facilitate the delivery process and customs declaration when shipping goods from Japan to Malaysia or any other country. It is necessary to provide the following data:

  • Information about the recipient: Full name, contact phone number, and address of the recipient are all required. 
  • Information on commodities: What is the total weight of the goods? What exactly is included? What kind of goods are they? (fragile, valuable, refrigeration, electronics, liquids, chemicals, and so on)
  • Information about the sender: full name, phone number, and contact address.

3. Choose the international payments

You can make all payments on Janbox with the money you’ve deposited in your account. You can fund your deposit with a debit or credit card directly through our website or through PayPal.

You can also fund your account using PayPal, an international bank transfer, or Alipay (Chinese customers). When making small payments, the quickest and cheapest method is to use a credit card or PayPal. If you want to deposit more than 100,000 JPY, an international bank transfer will be cheaper, but it will take 3-4 days.

4. Choose the form of shipping goods to the inland

Moving your belongings from Japan to Malaysia is simple. Once you’ve decided what you’re bringing, you must choose between air freight and sea freight.


Sea Freight

Shipping by sea is the most common method of transporting commodities around the world for one major reason: lower costs. Sea freight is used for all types of products, but it becomes obvious for heavy and large products. If you intend to export products from one of the following categories, you must use sea freight: furniture, vehicles, textiles and clothing, food and beverages, machinery, and heavy machinery.

Your shipment will most likely travel from Japan’s Port of Tokyo to Port Klang or Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia. In their respective countries, these ports handle the majority of exports and imports.

Air Freight

Air freight is the best option for small-quantity deliveries such as test samples, product samples, fragile products, products to be used at exhibitions, or when time is of the essence and sea freight is not an option.

Air freight from Japan to Malaysia takes about 1 to 3 days, which is a significantly shorter lead time than sea freight. In round figures, air freight takes one-fifth of the time.

It’s worth noting that storage near airports is generally less expensive than storage near ports. If you intend to store your goods for an extended period of time, confirm this point. Air freight is also a safer bet in terms of quality assurance and product protection.

In terms of cargo movement, three of the busiest airports in Japan are:

  • Narita International Airport,
  • Haneda Airport and
  • Kansai International Airport.

Whereas for Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur International Airport handles the most traffic cargo.

Should you choose air freight or sea freight? 

Air freight is ideal for people who need to relocate quickly. Most cargo planes can fly from anywhere in the world to Malaysia in two or three days. However, air freight is also very expensive, so if you’re on a tight budget, you should avoid it.

Sea freight, on the other hand, is significantly less expensive, typically costing about five times as much as air freight. While the service is slower, it is also less expensive, so it is critical that you plan your move ahead of time.

5. Wait for the goods to arrive at the domestic warehouse and pick up the goods

We will ship your package within 1 to 3 working days after you specify your shipping details and pay for international shipping. Your job is to simply sit back and wait for the goods to arrive and be delivered to your warehouse.
