Japan to Australia – Changes to booking procedure based on vehicle height

28 Apr 2022

Any vehicle which is higher than 195 cm is considered oversize by Armacup, one of the major shipping lines on the Ro/Ro trade from Japan to Australia.

This means that our standard rates do not apply for such vehicles shipped on the Armacup service, resulting in higher cost.

We have therefore suspended our bookings with this shipping line for the any vehicle exceeding 195 cm in height but under 20m3 in size (for example some Toyota Hiace models and Toyota Vellfire, among others).  Vehicles less than 195 cm high or larger vehicles over 20m3 in size will be booked with Armacup as usual.

However, in case you would like us to use the Armacup service for vehicles over 195 cm but under 20m3 regardless of the higher cost kindly confirm to us your choice in writing prior shipment. If no instructions are being received in time we will seek space with alternative carriers.
