Business guide

We are always challenging the technological innovation to match up to the current trends and we offer the best transportation method to satisfy your needs "promptly" and "faithfully".



We offer the best transportation for each vehicle with our original know-how.

Transport of any automobile can be classified into these three classes; one of which is new car transport, used car transport and your own car transport. For the new car transport, we take care of the transportation from automobile manufacturers to harbors and distribution bases, pre-delivery inspection centers and car dealers and for the used car transport, in between auction sites, used car dealers and rental car centers, for the own car transport, we transport your own cars to the new places when you're moving.

SEA-LINK JAPAN mainly transports used cars and your privately owned vehicles. We generally use a car carrier trailer for land transportation, however, our driver individually drives your car to the areas such as residential and urban district that are hard to get by or for those cars which are too wide or too high for the trailer. You don't need to worry about the expiration date on your vehicle inspection certificate. We use various sizes of car carrier trailers such as one for one machine, one for multiple units and trailers, depending on how large your order is. We have specific cars for transporting a motorcycle and damaged car (immovable car), so please don't hesitate to ask us.

We use sea routes as well as land routes for a long distance transport. We drive those cars on the passageway called ramp-way that is equipped at the center or back of vessels which lies on the quay to load and unload cars to/from the vessels.
We load various kinds of cars without wasting any spaces inside of 5 to 6 layers, which depends on how large the vessel is, of spaces and we transport your cars safely.

Construction machine

We transport various kinds of special vehicles in accordance with laws and regulations.

Since some of the construction machinery can't go on the roads we generally transport those machinery on trailers. For the one that is too big to load on trailers, we take it into smaller parts such as crawlers, buckets and counterweights then put them onto several trailers. According to Road Traffic Act, for those vehicles which has particular structure or particular freight and if one of these following which is either width, length, height or total weight is over the limit of general road regulation or if the total weight is over the maximum weight of either bridge, elevated expressway or tunnel regulations, the vehicle will be defined as a special vehicle and we need the "Special vehicle traffic permission" in order to go on the road. Furthermore, there might be the restrictions such as driving slow or driving night-time only.

We need to pay attention when we're loading the heavy machinery. There are so many things that you have to consider when we're transporting heavy machinery such as the strength of the quay and the strength, width and size of the entrance of vessel's ramp way. We'll offer the best transportation measure for each vehicle in accordance with all the regulations.

Auto truck

We satisfy your specific needs.

For the land transportation of large vehicles such as trucks, buses or trailers, we'll drive ourselves. We choose the suitable driver who holds the specific license for each vehicle including large‐sized cars and towing cars. There are signs on many commercial trucks, we can put tape over the sign to cover or put up the sign "forwarding" to show the vehicle is out-of-service.

We offer a more effective measure of transportation.

This is how we load/unload vehicles on chassis to/from a vessel. We pull them with a truck head directly into a vessel and detach from the truck head for loading. They'll be connected to the truck head again to unload and ready to send them in to the delivery destinations.
There are merits to detach simply the truck head that save driver's labor and shipping space. On top of that, being able to transport in one-step leads to save a lot of costs as well. In addition, we can reduce the shock to freight by using marine transportation and protect your important vehicles from damage. We work so hard to establish the reliable system to transport safely and securely and will continuously maintain the quality and safe transportation.
