"K" LINE to Open Re-structured Kansai Branch

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (hereunder referred to as "K" LINE) takes pleasure in reporting that its Osaka and Kobe Branch Offices are to be consolidated into a newly re-structured Kansai Branch, effective July 1, 2002.

As a result of the new branch being located close to port, the present two sales teams in the Osaka Branch will be able to have closer coordination with the front-line shipping work. This will enable "K" LINE to further solidify its system in which every piece of front-line information can be expediently supplied to customers, thereby allowing the carrier to upgrade its information service capabilities. In the meantime, customer service at the new Kansai Branch will be reinforced, enabling sales staff to dedicate themselves to customer calls, having been placed closer to the market. Additionally, near the present Osaka Branch an Osaka Office will be installed where the series of shipping documentation work related to ocean bills of lading and delivery orders can be efficiently carried out.

Outline of the new Kansai Branch is shown as follows:

  1. Location
    At the present Kobe Branch located within Kobe Container Terminal (Rokko Island)
  2. Organization
    The following teams are to be established:
    Sales Team No.1 (replaces present Sales Team No.1 at Osaka Branch)
    Sales Team No.2 (replaces present Sales Team No.2 at Osaka Branch)
    Traffic, Container Inventory & Documentation Team (taking over documentation/container inventory/traffic and general affairs matters at the present Kobe and/or Osaka Branches)
    Osaka Documentation Team (performing shipping documentation work related to Bs/L, D/Os)
    Port Captain Team (replaces Port Captain Team at present Kobe Branch)
