Rickmers-Linie opens Japan subsidiary
Rickmers-Linie, the German breakbulk, heavy lift and project cargo shipping line, today opened its Japanese subsidiary Rickmers (Japan) Inc.
Tokyo-based Rickmers (Japan) takes over the work of Rickmers-Linie’s former agent in the country, Japan Heavy Lift Inc.
“This step reflects the significance of the Japanese market, as well as Rickmers-Linie’s long-term commitment and objectives of providing dedicated services to its Japanese customers and market place,” Rickmers-Linie said.
The carrier offers fortnightly sailings from Japan to the United States and destinations in Central America, as well as a monthly westbound service from the U.S. to Japan.
