“K” LINE (INDIA) PRIVATE LIMITED enters into coastal shipping operation in India
“K” Line (India) Private Limited (hereinafter KLIN), “K” Line’s subsidiary company in India, is further expanding its services in India by entering into coastal shipping operations.
KLIN commenced its coastal transportation in India with the movement of iron ore cargo, having shipped about 55,000 Metric Tons of iron ore from the East coast to Mumbai on the West coast of India utilizing a one-spot chartered vessel.
This transportation was introduced to meet an increase in demand for coastal transportation of bulk cargo such as iron ore and coal. We plan to further expand into the coastal transportation business in other areas of Asia.
In India, satisfactory progress has been made in the transportation of motorcycles by Triple Decker Motorcycle Carriers and land transportation of steel materials. These services are in line with our desire to provide comprehensive logistics services to meet customer needs that utilize strong local ties.
