Q3: The rise in oil prices is pushing up air transport expenses worldwide. What is the cost of shipping racehorses out of Japan?

answer

The cost of shipping horses out of Japan in the past was fairly expensive, but there has been an improvement since around 2005. As an example, it now costs around JPY 1,000,000 to ship a horse from an export quarantine facility in Japan to an import quarantine facility in Singapore, or Hong Kong. However, with the rise in oil prices, all the carriers are hiking their fuel surcharges. Horses shipped to South Korea, are sent by ship, and it only costs in the region of JPY 400,000 to ship a horse to Pusan.
