Private-sector Company Training for Teachers
Since 1994, MOL has accepted participants in an internship program to instruct school teachers about private-sector companies sponsored by the Keizai Koho Center-Japan Institute for Social and Economic Affairs. In fiscal 2011, MOL hosted 13 teachers from Tokyo for internship sessions and onsite observation that took place over three days during summer vacation in August. In addition to topics such as shipping and an overview of MOL businesses, the internship sessions highlighted MOL's approach to CSR activities and safe operation measures, and participants toured the MOL Safety Operation Supporting Center (SOSC). As an opportunity to see and experience MOL's operations up-close, they also visited MOL's container terminal and distribution center in Ohi, Tokyo, and the cruise ship Nippon Maru, and experienced firsthand the bridge simulator.
Container Terminal Tours
Together with Group companies Utoc Corporation and Shosen Koun Co., Ltd., MOL has for many years given tours of container terminals-trade gateways for Japan-to junior and senior high school students, as well as adults, out of a desire to teach people the roles played by ocean shipping and port operation.
