Outline of Management Plan (Rolling Plan)

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) formulates a management plan (Rolling Plan) yearly since fiscal 2017.

In formulating the plan, it first devises a vision for the MOL Group ten years from now, along with a long-term course for management, and then drafts long-term business strategies to realize this vision. This process is followed considering the major upheaval in the business environment surrounding MOL and the maritime transport industry. The main thrust of the plan is to reinvent the business portfolio in tandem with enhancing financial strength by strategically allocating resources to carefully selected business fields. The plan is named “Rolling Plan 201X,” according to the year, and is scheduled to be reviewed annually.
