Using several ports in widespread locations same time gives us real advantages:
To minimize local transportation cost. Before leaving Japan, vessels of most lines make a stop at each of those ports, so we can bring the vehicle to one of ports which is closest to the auction where we bought the vehicle.
To allow us to buy vehicles at any auctions and tenders all-side Japan.

Auction companies are responsible to transfer original documents of the vehicles from previous owner to us within one week. Neither auction companies nor new owners can request previous woners to post originals much quicker.
After vessel leaves, it takes 1-3 days to issue the copy of bill of lading, and another 3-5 days are spent to prepare original bill of lading by shipping company.
Most vessel companies do not usually accept inner cargo (spare parts, accessories or other small-sized items) to ship together with the vehicle for Ro/Ro shipment. The reasons may come as - difficulties in customs process, safety sailing, ecological and sanitary restrictions, avoiding the possible loss during the sailing, etc..
The vessels of most Lines leave Japan at the end of each month, 25th-30th.
