Introduction: During my vacation in Japan, I sent a package home to Denmark via Japan Post international mail. Unfortunately the package was declined at Danish customs, so the package was sent back to Japan. The package has low monetary value, but high emotional value to me, so I want try sending the package again. Since I am no longer in Japan, I will need an assistant near Nakagyo, Kyoto to help me.
The package contains only allowed items and was successfully cleared by Japanese customs inspection.
Candidate requirements: - Good English and communication skills, so you and I can work together. - Availability. This is a time-sensitive task. - Attention to details. The first attempt at passing customs in Denmark was likely unsuccessful due to wrong or missing information in the package’s shipping or customs information. - Bonus points if you have dealt with Japan Post and their international mail service before.
Expected tasks and steps to succeed: - 1) Call Japan Post customer support to claim package. I have tracking ID/number, phone number and can tell you exactly where the package currently is. If needed by Japan Post, figure out how to create a valid power of attorney, so you can pick-up the package. - 2) Pick-up package at Japanese postal office in Nakagyo, Kyoto area. - 3) Remove all stickers from package (to avoid confusion with first attempt of sending package to Denmark). - 4) Bring new shipping label and customs declaration, filled out by me, using Japan Post’s “International Mail My Page Service”. I will forward these to you by email, for you to bring to the postal office. - 5) Pay for shipping and mail/send package again at postal office. I will add the costs of sending the package (around 8100 YEN) on top of the Anytime offer.
What I will provide you with to succeed: - Tracking ID/number at Japan Post including tracking log of package. - New shipping label and customs declaration, to be printed and paid for at the postal office in Japan. - Detailed list of contents of package, in case you need it at the postal office. - Answers and any other information you or Japan Post might need. - For more information on the process, see: https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/howto/index_en.html
