Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” Line) received a letter of appreciation from Embassy of El Salvador in Japan for providing free ocean transportation of fire engines and ambulances donated by Japanese municipalities.  


Since 2014, in order to contribute to solve the problem for lack of fire engines and ambulances in Republic of El Salvador, “K” Line group has supported free ocean transportation by “K” Line’s pure car carrier (PCC), and undertaken total of 22 donated vehicles to the country (10 fire engines and 12 ambulances), in 11 times shipments.


“K” Line has been acting as Honorary Consul of El Salvador in Japan since 1969, and kept cooperating with the country due to the deep relationship between them. With respect to a customs clearance work and loading operation at loading port of Yokohama, we requested a cooperation to Daito Corporation (A group company of “K” Line)


“K” Line group is praying that those vehicles transported through our activity will contribute to protecting precious human lives in Republic of El Salvador, and we will continue actively working on marine transportation as a social contribution activity unique to shipping company.
