Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK)’s sixth LNG-fuelled pure car and truck carrier (PCTC), Sumire Leader, has commenced its transportation service for Mazda Motor Corporation.
The vessel has arrived at the Ports of Hiroshima and Nakanoseki. This is the last of four LNG-fuelled PCTCs delivered from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) Co. Ltd.
The Sumire Leader will transport finished vehicles, including those made by Mazda Motor Corporation, and seeks to fulfill customers’ demands for a lower environmental burden in the logistics field.
The NYK Group is promoting ESG-driven growth strategies, based on the Group’s mission statement of “bringing value to life” and a new corporate vision for 2030, which states: “We go beyond the scope of a comprehensive global logistics enterprise to co-create value required for the future by advancing our core businesses and growing new ones.”
