TNT Express delivers Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 racing cars from England to Japan


17 October 2013 - TNT Express Japan has coordinated the delivery of two Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 racing cars from Daventry, England to Yokokama, Japan at the request of NISMO (Nissan Motorsport International Co-Ltd.). The cars were prepared by the UK motorsport company JRM under supervision from NISMO.

A subsidiary of Nissan Motor Co Ltd, one of Japan’s leading automobile companies, NISMO designs, develops and sells automobile parts for motorsports and stock cars. The company participates in both Japanese and overseas car races.

The two racing cars were trucked from JRM’s factory in Daventry to Luxembourg Airport via London’s Heathrow Airport. From Luxembourg, they were air freighted to Narita International Airport. After clearing Japanese customs, they were transhipped to a delivery vehicle designed for racing cars. Accompanied by TNT Express staff, the cars were safely delivered to destination.

Delivery of racing cars requires extreme caution against shock. Cases of bumper damage during shipping are not rare. TNT Express Japan successfully completed the delivery on time and without any damage.
