Outline of Services
The MOL Group's ferry and coastal RoRo vessel business plays a key role in vitalizing local economies and brings more affluent lifestyles to people all over Japan.
Through our cargo transportation service, we connect regional hubs throughout Japan with the comprehensive transport networks on the land and sea. In recent years, public attention has focused on climate change and a shortage of truck drivers in Japan. As an essential player in Japan's "Modal Shift" which realizes a new level in efficient and environmentally friendly transportation, we not only meet customers' needs but also fulfill our social responsibilities.
Our passenger transportation service, we provide convenient services with comfortable facilities that allow passengers to experience an extraordinary voyage, under the "Casual Cruises" concept.
MOL has ordered Japan's first two LNG-fueled ferries, which are slated for launch on the Beppu-Osaka route sequentially from end 2022 to early 2023. This will reduce CO2 emissions by 20% compared to current ferries, meeting customers' needs while also achieving outstanding environmental performance.
