The Optimus Value Chain

The Optimus Group value chain is a series of consecutive steps that connect each of our businesses to support our customers’ needs in the delivery of end-to-end automotive solutions. Either for industry or for the retail consumer. Up to now our predominant market has been New Zealand, where we’ve built a consistent value chain that encompasses export, logistics, quarantine inspection, compliance, vehicle sourcing and wholesaling, along with retail and wholesale financing for industry and consumer. 

There are various inter-connected processes for delivering used vehicles from Japan to overseas dealers, with each process usually undertaken by a separate business operator.

Our value chain delivers a streamlined, problem-free experience for our customers by taking control of the entire process end-to-end – from procurement to cleaning and maintenance, inspection and quarantine, customs clearance, marine transportation and local maintenance and vehicle inspection.
