shima's business is not limited to Japan, but we also export used vehicles and parts to about 160 countries and regions around the world. The reputation of excellent Japanese vehicles is high worldwide, and their versatility and fuel efficiency are outstanding compared to vehicles made in other countries. Japanese high-quality used vehicles and parts play an important role in infrastructure development in developing countries and other countries, not only as automobiles but also as engines that sometimes power fishing boats and generators in areas where electricity is not available. Among the high-quality used vehicles, Shima has focused on "working vehicles" such as trucks and construction machineries, and as a professional in this field, has cultivated markets around the world. It is our pride and joy to contribute to the development of as many countries and regions as possible by expanding our sales channels and providing "Made in Japan" products to customers around the world.
