Shipping Agent in Vladivostok
 
Hi,

can someone recommend a shipping agent in Vladivostok?

I am thinking of shipping my car from Vlad to Anchorage.

Many thanks,

Shipping Agent Vlad
 
Vladivostok: Contact Yuri Melnikov, he should be able to provide you with a list of shipping agents in Vladivostok

However, .. I tried for Vlad to Anchorage August 2008 and ended up running in ever decreasing circles. I ended up taking the Dong Chun Ferry from Zarabino to Sok Cho (South Korea) then using the awsome Wendy Choi of Aero International for onwards shipping to the USA.

I met a lady from Vladivostok who was heading to Mongolia to take part in a rally. She handed me her business card, told me she was in transportation!

here are her details, she speaks and writes English very well!

Marina

ООО "Единая Транспортная-ДВ"
тел. (4232) 499-500, 302-000, 406-737

(If she asks where you got her contact details you can just say, from Danielle who you met, she was the girl travelling by her self on a motorbike in the middle of Siberia. We were both on route to Mongolia.)

I hope this information hasn't come to late!
good luck

could some one please tell me which is the cheapest / easyest .i have time. i am leaving russia in a month or so and would like to know if i should get the ferry from zarabino to korea and then put the bike on a ship to canada or the US or if it would be cheeper to put it on a ship from vladivostok.

Kito,

The cheapest and easiest way out of Vladivostok is to ride the 750km back to Khabarosk, then to Vanino. Catch a ferry to Sakhalin Island and another one to Wakkanai, on Hokkadio Island in Japan. It seems the cheapest place to fly to the U.S. from is Yokahama. I cannot reccomend any shipping agents in Tokyo.

I wrote details of this trip in the Horizons shipping section.

I think that would be difficult. There is no airport in Yokohama! A shipping company may have a warehouse there where you deliver the bike, but it will go out of Narita International Airport. Ask your shipping company for the cheapest location rather than specifying an airport.

I know of only ONE person who has gotten into Japan without a carnet and it took him a week with help to get the paperwork done. Someone is going to try next month. I will let you know if Japan customs is becoming less strict about the carnet. He may just be sent back to Russia. I hope not, though!

will they not let you put the bike onto a truck to the airport if you have already arrived in japan with no carnet ?

Maybe.
But putting it on any old rented truck means importing it. That is more paperwork and time than a temporary import for driving it yourself (using a carnet). Directly to an airport (I assume) means from one bonded warehouse to another. I don't think that just anyone can handle transport between bonded warehouses.
I may be wrong. But is isn't something anyone on a short schedule should try. Japanese officials like "precedent". If there are many examples of something and is is regularly done (i.e. temporary import by carnet at the ferry port) everything is smooth. Otherwise you run into obstacles and an unwillingness to go to the effort to finding a way around those. But on the bright side, they don't like to say "no" either. So if you can point out the way around the obstacle yourself (relevant laws, etc.), you stand a chance.
So, it is worth a shot if you have time on your hands and are flexible. If you absolutely have to be someplace in a week, I would say to not even think of it.

FESCO /TransFES are the biggest agents in Vladivostok. They ship from there to the US and Europe. (and Magadan)

Dont know how cheap, just met a german guy shipping to the states and he just had to take a 20 foot container for the bike, 3000 usd all up i believe. Not sure if he used Fesco or not

Thank you all for the infos.

I contacted the persons you mentioned.

Shipping from Vladivostok to Anchorage is very expensive (ca. US$ 7.000).

Shipping from Vlad to Vancouver or other ports further south is less than half the price (ca. US$ 3.000).
