Company profile

Company Profile

Kanetani Ltd. has operated in the trucking business since its establishment in 1953, providing a comprehensive and reliable source of used trucks.

The company has expanded to offer not just a wider range of vehicles, but also truck parts and production tools, serving customers both within Japan and overseas.
Half a century of service
We believe the secret to finding the right used truck is to be able to look at, touch, try, and choose from a wide variety of vehicles. That's why Kanetani maintains a huge site with a selection of hundreds of trucks for you to pick the one that's right for you.

Our well-stocked warehouses also offer construction vehicles and new vehicles, as well as parts, engines, transmissions, cabins, and chassis, to cover all your needs. We can also compare prices across our national network and find trucks for you wherever they're available. Our vehicles are entered into our computerised information service, starting with a strict initial inspection, and meticulously tracked through the subsequent thorough testing and preparation.
