MOL establishes new car carrier brand

MOL establishes new car carrier brand
Japan’s Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has established a new global brand for its car carrier business, named MOL Auto Carrier Express or MOL ACE.

MOL will start to use MOL ACE beginning 1 July 2015.

The Japanese group will market its car carrier services using its global network under the MOL ACE brand.

The group currently operates about 120 car carriers and provides a range of related services such as overland transport of completed vehicles, coastal transport and terminal operations in six nations, mainly in the rapidly growing Asian markets.

In 2012, MOL launched the world’s first newbuilding hybrid car carrier, Emerald Ace, marking a significant advance in environment friendliness.

In April this year, it announced the next-generation of car carriers, the Flexie series, which adopt a new deck design.
