MOL targets ro-ro industry for growth

The ocean carrier has made ‘MOL Auto Carrier Express’ its global brand.

   Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Line said it has established MOL Auto Carrier Express (MOL ACE) as global brand in the car carrier service sector, which is one of its major business fields.
   MOL will start to use “MOL ACE” beginning July 1.
   MOL’s car carrier service network includes offices and agencies in about 140 nations around the world, and the MOL Group operates about 120 car carriers to meet its customers’ global transport needs.
   The ships transport other large cargoes such as machinery and trailers used in construction, as well as automobiles, buses and trucks. MOL also provides a broad range of related services such as overland transport of completed vehicles, coastal transport, and terminal operations in six nations, mainly in rapidly growing Asian markets.
   MOL launched the world’s first newbuilding hybrid car carrier, the Emerald Ace, in 2012, marking a significant advance in environment-friendliness. And, in April of this year, the company announced its next-generation of car carriers, the FLEXIE series, which will adopt a new deck design.
   The MOL ACE brand recalls MOL’s long history of vessels with “Ace” in the name, reflecting decades of innovation in environmental concern and higher levels of safety and technology, the company said. “The global brand established today embodies the company’s determination to build on these traditions as it continues to grow in the global market.”
