The aim of this Factsheet to explain to EU exporters of goods to Japan the market access opportunities offered by the EU-Japan Economic Partnership (EPA).

It also gives information on container stations and depot services, as well as on customs clearance services, maritime agency services and handling services. To read the factsheet, please click here.
