As the raw materials usually carried by the bulk carriers, finished products which cannot fit in the containers are transported by our multipurpose vessels (MPP) and Mini/Small Bulkers. These types of vessels can ensure you cost efficiency while carrying the goods in safety with high volume and cheaper price. Mostly steel products such as coils pipes sheet metals are our main target of our business. MOL is providing this service in Asian Waters but we are not active in this region now.
MOL Project & Heavy Cargo (MOLPHC)
In 2015, the MOL Group set up an integrated brand, MOL Project & Heavy Cargo (PHC), to meet the increasing needs for heavy and oversized cargo transport. We provide door-to-door services with optimum transport using a wide range of types of vessels, as well as vanning, coastal and inland transport, customs clearance, and installation of equipment.
Leading Shipping Line of Steel Transportation in Japan
MOL is the leading Shipping Line of Steel Transportation in Japan and MOL Kinkai, subsidiary of MOL is one of the major multi-purpose ship operators in Asian Waters and operating around 50 ships in the range of 9K to 17K multi-purpose ships and 19K to 28K single bulkers.
As the leading shipping line for steel transportation, MOL adopted the new system for reducing damage from the temperature difference with the open air dew point of the port of unloading by blowing warm air into the hold of the freighter and raising the surface temperature of the steel. This prevents the condensation (occurrence of saturated water vapor, adherence of water droplets) that occurs after releasing the hatch cover.
This system has been supported by Japanese Steel Makers who exports high qualified HRC etc. and MOL Turkey will bring the vessels with this system to East Med region and provide the qualified transport service to the customers in this region.
MOL Turkey’s Ambition
MOL has signed Strategic Partnership Agreement with Tosyalı Holding in August 2019. Project details are still under discussion, but it is highly expected to promote the Shipping Service by the middle and small sized Multi-Purpose Vessels in the area of East Med to West Africa/Europe under this Strategic Partnership. Based on this service, we shall promote “MOL Project & Heavy Cargo (MOLPHC)” activity in this region and considering also widening our operating area to much bigger picture such as whole Africa and not only shipping but we aim to expand our logistic business for such cargoes with land transporting/warehousing/port management etc.
We are looking forward to announcing our new business in near future.
