Parcel To Japan

Parcel to Japan

Japan is an island country in the East of Asia located in the Pacific Ocean.  The name means “sun origin” which has led to some calling it the “land of the rising sun”. It is estimated that the population of Japan exceeds 126 million meaning that is the 10th biggest country in the world. As a member of the United Nations, Japan is a nation that has great economic power as it is predicted that they have the world's third-biggest economy by nominal GDP. It is currently the world's 5th largest importer and exporter. 

Customers looking to send a parcel to Japan can do so with Worldwide Parcel Services from just £28.25. Japan is one of our most far-out destinations, located on the far eastern coast of Asia. As a country, Japan suffered disaster in recent years with the earthquake in 2011 which had devastating effects.

Regardless, we see huge amounts of shipments on a regular basis to cities including Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo and many more. Currently, a wide range of air services are available to Japan from DHL, APC and others. Presently there is an estimated delivery time between 2 - 5 days to Japan.

You may think that sending large and awkward parcels via air to such a distant destination would be a hassle. However, as long as it is under 500kg and package correctly, this isn't a problem for Worldwide Parcel Services.
