In 1965, MOL launched the first pure car carrier (PCC) to meet the needs of Japan’s burgeoning automobile export trade. Since then, as a pioneer in automobile transport, we have offered continual improvements in the safety and reliability of our car carrier service, in step with the market’s globalization. The capacity of the first PPCs were about 1,200 automobiles. Today’s pure car and truck carriers (PCTCs) accommodate all types of vehicles, from passenger cars to construction machineries. With up to 13 cargo decks, PCTSs can transport 6,400 standard passenger cars at once. And 2018, New Type Vessels with 6 liftable decks has started to join in our fleet.
Not only sea transportation, MOL has established joint ventures in markets where the automobile industry is showing rapid growth, such as Thailand/China/India. We offer top quality, locally based, comprehensive automobile transport services such as domestic trucking, coastal transport, and terminal operation.
The trade of Automobile in Turkey is mainly with European Countries and this trade has been done by another brand of MOL Group. “Euro Marine Logistics(EML)” is the short-sea PCC operater and mainly operates inter European Trade by small/middle size PCTC. Their vessels call regularly at Turkish Ports.
MOL Turkey’s Ambition
At present MOL PCTC service have not covered Turkey and the cargoes from/to Turkey are transshipped at Piraeus Port. Actually the connecting service is not so good for the customers in Turkey and Black Sea region. In future, MOL Turkey will secure more business in Turkey and try to make them direct call to Turkish Ports. With support of many Car makers, EML continue stable service between Turkey and Europe, however EML service is not enough to satisfy the export requirements of Turkish customers, MOL Turkey would like to improve the RORO service with Turkish Partners for covering East Med and Black Sea regions.
