Transporting Vital Energy Resources across the World
By ensuring the stable transport of resources, our Energy Group supports Japan’s industry where most of its energy resources are imported. With 70,000 to 100,000 dwt bulk carriers and very large gas carriers (VLGCs) as its main vessels, the Group transports thermal coal for domestic and overseas electric power companies, environmentally friendly biomass fuels, and LPG (liquid petroleum gas) consumed by various industries and households. In addition, we conduct a wide range of businesses, such as the transport of raw materials to steel companies across the world, the transport of grains across the Atlantic Ocean, and a combination of trade routes that deliver raw materials from Asia to our customers in Europe for outbound voyages, and grains from Brazil to Asia for the return trips.
The Group also procures the fuel oil for all of our operating vessels. Our strong relations with domestic and overseas oil companies ensure stable and cost competitive procurement through futures trading and other means. At the same time, we are responding to stricter global environmental regulations on SOx and other emissions.
