Japan is the United States’ fourth largest trading partner and one of the 87+ countries and territories in the ATA Carnet system.  U.S. goods and services trade with Japan totaled an estimated $252.2 billion in 2020.  As a top destination for trade and commerce, boomerang carnets® regularly serves businesses and organizations seeking to expand their global footprint in Japan with the use of ATA Carnets.  You can grow your business by expanding into Japan using an ATA Carnet to temporarily enter goods import-duty and -tax free for sales appointments, exhibitions, or demonstrations, or fulfill a contract requiring use of your equipment and services.  Boomerang issued ATA Carnets to specialized vendors and television media outlets covering the Olympics in Tokyo!
