NYK signs first prestigious Contract with JLR.

NYK's RORO Division have successfully secured their first contract with Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) for the shipment of vehicles from the Port of Southampton (UK) to Port Hueneme (US West Coast). The first shipment was loaded in January earlier this year and NYK will commit to a minimum of 2 sailings per month.

The trade lane to USA is a very important one for NYK and to receive this new contract is a significant achievement. Both NYK and JLR are looking forward to working together in the future to secure a valuable long term partnership.

JLR saw sales in North America climb 21% in 2013 which was second only to its biggest market in China and Asia Pacific which increased by 30% during the same period.
