Representatives of Japan Export Vehicle Inspection Centre (JEVIC), one of Japan’s leading certification companies for used vehicles, visited Sri Lanka recently to meet its representatives, Premium Trading and Logistics Ltd., for discussions on its marketing strategy and to meet with the industry.
The Sri Lankan Government in mid 2013 approved JEVIC as one of the authorised vehicle inspection companies for used vehicles prior to export from Japan, the company said this week.
They took the opportunity and met with industry leaders consisting of a cross section of the used vehicle importers in Sri Lanka and introduced the services offered by JEVIC. They also paid courtesy calls on key officials of Government authorities including Director of Fiscal Policy – Ministry of Finance, Controller General of Imports and Exports, Controller General of Motor Vehicles and representatives of the Sri Lanka Customs where they discussed critical issues faced by used vehicle importers relating to pre-inspection activities and the way forward in providing the best solutions to facilitate the process and potentially-viable value-added services to enrich the used car market in Sri Lanka.
“The company is accredited to ISO/IEC 17020: 1998 IBS Standard Type A and brings together the necessary technical ability and experience to conduct pre-shipment inspection of used motor vehicles destined to Sri Lanka. Its strategically-located office network is positioned in load port positions in Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka and Kobe, backed by over 30 approved, fully-equipped inspection sites including within port-bonded facilities, which has reduced considerable logistical expenses to the exporter,” the statement said.
