The Proven Leader
NYK (Nippon Yusen Kaisha—The Japan Mail Steamship Company) was established in 1885 and has grown steadily to become the world’s leading shipping company. As the leader, NYK offers complete logistics solutions for the carriage of containerised cargoes, bulk cargoes and roll on roll off (RoRo) cargoes. Today NYK is the worlds largest shipping and transportation company operating 782 vessels with a grand total DWT of 37.628 million metric tons.


Throughout our long history NYK has always strived to offer safe, high-quality services. To meet these goals most effectively NYK is structured to focus on four “core businesses”—specialized carriers, container transport, logistics and passenger ships. Recognizing the importance of the world economy in 1989 NYK RoRo was created. Comprised of drybulk and RoRo divisions it was created to better serve those customers utilizing NYK’s expanding fleet of bulk carriers, tankers, reefer carriers and RoRo - pure car truck carriers.


The evolution of the RoRo fleet began in the early 1960’s and is truly reflective of the forward thinking and responsiveness of the NYK group. As the industry leader NYK launched our first custom built car carrier, with a capacity of 1,288 units, in 1965. Since that time we have continued to listen to our customers’ requirements. Our fleet today includes the most sophisticated roll on roll off vessels of our time, with a capacity of upwards of 5,980 units (car equivalent).
