Port to Door Shipping Services

Dolphin Shipping provides two ship loadings per month (one vessel loading every two weeks) with a transit time of 20-22 days. Vehicles are loaded in Osaka, Nagoya and Kawasaki and ports of discharge are Auckland, Wellington, Lyttelton and Nelson. Moji in Japan is also serviced once a month as an additional load port. [Click here to see schedule].

We manage the whole process, from liaising with your agent in Japan right through to delivery of your vehicle to your door in New Zealand. Our process is simple and reliable as we have a partner agent in Japan called Daiwa Logistics ( which will help to import cars from Japan to New Zealand.

We charter space on Toyofuji for a Roll On/Roll Off service; these are modern, clean ships and, best of all, they're never late. Their schedules are reliable and the arrival times are evenly spaced, to enable you to plan your vehicle arrivals – and your cash flow!
