  • Type of transport: By containership (dry containers)
  • Loading ports: Ports where MOL Group-operated vessels make direct calls

  • Scope 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 customs clearance procedures at both departure and arrival ports and procedures for land transport must be arranged by the consigners and consignees without fail. Acceptance may be adjusted depending on space available on operated vessels and conditions at terminals.
