RE: Heat treatment to resume for 2023


The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) season will begin again on September 1st.

As previously, all used vehicles being loaded in Japan for shipping September 1st or later will be Heat Treated as MPI requires.

All vehicles on the Walrus Ace 0039A, Trans Future 3 283 and all subsequent vessels will be subject to Heat Treatment.

All standard vehicle treatment costs remain at $225.00 NZD, with larger/heavier units subject to higher rates – Price on Application.

Commercial machinery and forklift vehicles cannot be accepted during the BMSB season. Damaged and non-running vehicles may also not be accepted, depending on their specific condition and location.

If you need any further information, please contact
