One day he hurried me to send him a Grand Carnival to Ethiopia.
Therefore I asked him to call me when he checks out where he'd get the car and pick it up.
I also told him agency business was available.
After a lot of international calls made, I decided to buy a car from a dealer I know.
We took care of all work and car came from Jeonla province in Korea.
I couldn't check the car but I didn’t worry about it. Usually Grand Carnival is in good condition.
After I bought the car I consult with shipping company about that.
However I found that there is no direct ship going to Ethiopia after asking a couple of questions to
manager from Myoung-sung shipping company I use. His answer was that inevitably overland
transport was needed. Therefore I gave him an international call and said it’s not good to choose
overland transport if the condition of expressway in Ethiopia was not as good as in Korea.
I don’t want my customer in Ethiopia to see terrible condition of the car I sent. During my search for ro-
ro ship, I finally found that there is ro-ro ship going to Sudan, which came to Korea once a month. The
port is located in Djibouti.
This port seems to be the gateway to East Africa.
Usually cars are sent to Kenya where Japanese left-hand drive cars are imported. Most of Korean cars
which is right-hand drive cars are sent to Djibouti. Therefore I check out the schedule and found we
don’t have much time. We hurried a consignment of cars, cancellation of registration and handling of
license and then entered a port and finally finished up with shipping of cars. It all took only a day.
Because all the handling of shipment was done so quickly that I was a little worried if there’s any trouble.
Therefore I let him know about the process of transportation when I gave him an international call.
Every time I send cars abroad I feel like I’m a father who gives his daughter away in marriage.
I always hope that the cars would meet good owner.
The car will arrive at Ethiopia in 35 days at the most.
I will ask my customer to take a picture of the car and post it on our website when he receives it.
It was my first time to send cars to Ethiopia and I searched web for the information about the country.
I found Ethiopia has interesting culture which made me want to know more about it.
If the result of transaction is good I want to make more of dealings with people in the country.
I hope to visit the country with my staff someday.
I understand some people have a doubt about the company that send cars away for free.
However you will understand why it’s possible to do that when you know about our profit structure.
Of course some companies receive about 300 US dollars on each sale and honestly that’s the general
practice in this industry.
I’d like to make sure that I don’t receive anything from the car owner and receiver abroad during the
process of sending cars away.
Because I think it’s not one-off transaction but gaining a foothold to have a good business relationship
in the future, which based on the trust.
You’re always welcomed and we are ready to be a good business partner.
If you want import Korean cars, you may want to ask some buyers for the advice in your country.
Not only we handle the purchase of cars and the process of shipment but also take all the
responsibility if there’s any problem.
