MOL secures car transport contracts in India

MOL secures car transport contracts in India

Tokyo: Mitsui O.S.K. Lines has announced that it has received orders for inland transport and yard operation of completed cars for export from a new Nissan Motor plant in India. The new plant will start manufacturing in early 2010 and will begin exporting vehicles, mainly to Europe, in late 2010. It will also produce vehicles for India's domestic market. The contract includes the transportation of cars to the export port and yard operations at the port such as storage and preparation for loading.

In bidding on overall vehicle logistics operations for the new plant, MOL won contracts for inland transport and yard operation of completed cars for export, which it believes should lead to ocean shipping in the future.

The Japanese transportation giant established MOL Auto Logistics (India) in Chennai in November 2008 and began inland transport of completed cars in April 2009.The company claims that the new order resulted from "MOL's reputation for superior performance in completed car transport throughout Asia".  [26/06/09]
