NYK currently operate one of the largest RoRo fleets in the world, and recently expanded by adding new more versatile vessels to their fleet.
NYK's worldwide fleet of purpose-built roll-on/roll-off (RORO) vessels meets the needs of the high and heavy plant machinery and car industries.
Over the years, we have built a trusted and reliable customer service dedicated to long-term business relationships across every key automotive production region in the world. As our customers' global markets evolve, we ensure our services continue to satisfy their requirements.
We can provide transportation for every type of vehicle from cars, plant equipment and agricultural machinery to specialist cargo such as boilers, transformers and yachts. Our decks and ramps are engineered with enough strength to handle heavy-duty vehicles and cargoes of up to 200 tonnes in weight while the main deck heights on our Leader class of vessels exceed 6.3 metres. We can also accomodate certain static cargoes on our versatile vessels. In addition, as part of our commitment to our customers, we offer a host of value-added services, including delivery to dealers, loading, per-delivery inspection, vehicle storage, trucking, brokerage and customs clearance.
While we move in excess of some three and a half million cars worldwide each year, the advanced design of our vessels ensures the loading process proceeds like clockwork. Oue new generation of RORO vessels is highly flexible, letting us carry up to 7,500 standard cars per voyage. On many of our vessels, 100 per cent of deck space can be used for cards over standard height and, as we place great emphasis on the care of our customers' products, damage prevention is always a high priority. Furthermore, our technical teams are continually monitoring and improving handling procedures in ports as well as on board our vessels.
NYK provides efficient integrated solutions for Completely Built Up (CBU) logistics, combining ocean transportation with Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) processing and final dealer delivery. We offer a single window for handling the entire outbound automotive industry supply chain, from vehicle collection at the point of manufacture, to final car delivery to the dealers. Our automotive logistics supply chain covers full global procurement.
