Enriching lives by making cars available to the world

Enriching lives by making cars available to the world
In countries without robust public transportation systems, cars are an integral part of daily life. This is especially true in developing countries, where having a car—or not—plays a significant role in determining one’s quality of life. Cars not only reduce the need for tiresome labor; they can also help expand businesses. A car can function as a tool that supports a family from the time of purchase well into the future. This is why many people hope to get their hands on that brand-new car of their dreams, and then pass it on to their children someday. When a new car is unrealistic, they’ll want to get the best used car possible and treat it with great care. Countless people around the world could want nothing more than this.
That’s why Relation is committed to providing high-quality cars. And by leveraging a global supply network developed over the years and superior one-stop service that caters to everything from car maintenance to shipping, we can stand by our promise to do so.

Sharing the richness of life
and the freedom and joy
made possible by cars
with all people, worldwide.

CEO Message

Providing Professional Service

Since its establishment in 2008, with the support of its overseas partners and all involved, Relation has continued to flourish as a company dedicated to automotive trading, steadily expanding its wide-ranging business activities, which include used vehicle wholesaling, automobile parts manufacturing, cross-border used vehicle trade facilitation, and more.

Some of these business activities were the direct result of customer requests. Others evolved from our own efforts to more deeply explore and understand our customers’ needs. Regardless of the impetus, all business activities at Relation derive from our firm commitment to providing customer-focused service.

Moving forward, we will continue to evolve and grow these businesses, leveraging our strengths and staying true to what sets Relation apart from other companies. Over the past several years, we have also been drawing from the experience and expertise gained in these fields to develop our knowledge of IT and digital transformation internally. With this newfound knowledge and experience, we intend to further expand our current offerings and venture into new areas of business in the future.
