"K" Line is a Pioneer in Maritime Transportation of Cars
"K" Line provides safe and speedy car transportation service as a pioneer in the business of owning and operating car carriers. As early as 1970, Toyota Maru No. 10 was placed into service as Japan's first specialized car carrier, so-called PCC (Pure Car Carrier). Constant and positive efforts have been continuously practiced for strengthenig our PCC fleet and upgrading quality of its services.
Safe Transportation & Environmental Friendliness
"K" Line has been endeavoring to innovatively reinforce its car carrier fleet with in-depth consideration to environmental preservation in particular, as well as to perform service in the handling of complete cars that is entirely damage-free at all times during loading and discharging operations as well as during ocean navigation.
From viewpoint of oil pollution prevention and environmental preservation, we adopted a new method in which fuel and bunker oil tanks are designed to be placed within a triple-bottom structure. This new method is expected to increase protective capabilities of the tanks when a ship's hull is damaged.
We have also succeeded in adopting an electronic control engine onboard a car carrier for the first time. Fuel injection timing and timing of both opening and closing of the exhaust valves are controlled with electronic signals. As a result, it contributes greatly to reducing emissions of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide), and reducing emission of CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and PM (particulate matter) when in low load operation. Furthermore, three ships in our fleet are equipped with a soot removal system with ceramic filters to remove scattering of PM in exhaust gas. In such a manner, we are endeavoring to reduce environmental loads through adoption of a variety of the most up-to-date high technology.
Response to Multiple Customer Needs
Turning attention to recent automobile manufacturing industries around the globe, production sites have been expansively shifting from the traditional vehicle-producing countries to emerging industrial countries. Together with this prevailing shift, logistics in the transport of complete cars is being more widely globalized. With a view to global logistics continuing to diversify still more from now on, we will continue endeavoring to introduce various types of ships in our fleet and strengthen "K" Line's service network covering the Atlantic, Southeast Asia, Oceania, intra-Europe and China, doing our best to satisfy customer needs by taking a positive and attentive attitude toward their requirements and what they expect from us.
