VIA is the business association that represents the interests of all businesses involved in importing, preparing, wholesaling and retailing most used vehicles that are imported into New Zealand from Japan, Singapore and other source markets.
VIA members include registered traders, importers and wholesalers, Japanese auction companies and exporters, shipping companies, NZ Government-accredited inspection agencies, ports, compliance shops and other service providers to the trade.
VIA advocates for the used vehicle sector, providing legal, technical and networking support to members, and liaising closely with Government across all aspects of present and future vehicle trading. Our Government stakeholders include NZTA, the Ministry of Transport, NZ Customs, the Ministry for Primary Industries, Ministry of Consumer Affairs, the Commerce Commission, EECA and the Ministry for Business and Innovation among others.
We are proud of our history of supporting the trade and supply of imported vehicles, and our evolution into a significant, independent industry authority.
