MOL Containership to Transport Aid Supplies from Overseas

Monday, March 21, 2011
Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) is determined to provide containerships to transport aid supplies from overseas. As the damages of the earthquake set in, MOL has received many calls from voices desired to transport aid supplies to Japan from overseas.
 
“We express our heartfelt sympathies to the families and friends of those who lost loved ones in the earthquake,” MOL President Koichi Muto said. “At the same time, we wish the best for the survivors of the earthquake and tsunami.”
 
Items covered: Grant aid supplies from public institutions such as governmental institutions and municipalities, or government-approved aid organizations to be shipped to disaster areas by the Tohoku district - off the Pacific Ocean earthquake. However, some of the items such as dangerous articles, animals, and other regulated items may not be accepted. Please contact for details.
 
Type of transport: By containerships (dry containers)
Loading ports: Overseas ports that our-operated vessels directly call in
Unloading ports: Ports in Japan that our-operated vessels directly call in
Coverage of transport: From container yards in loading ports to container yards in unloading ports
Conditions of acceptance:
-        Contacts of both consigners and consignees are clearly identified, and custom clearance procedures both at departure and arrival port, and procedures of land transport must be arranged by the consigners and consignees without fail.
-        Acceptance may be adjusted depending on spaces of operated vessels and situations at terminals.
Period: Aid supplied delivered to container yards at the loading ports before the end of May 2011. As shipping capacity is limited, transport of those supplies will be on a first-come first-shipped basis.
 
Please contact for vehicles and other supplies that cannot be loaded in containers.
 
* To apply for shipment of supplies, contact the nearest MOL office or agents.
