Company Facts

Tokyo-based NYK Bulk & Projects — a wholly owned subsidiary of Nippon Yusen Kaisha, Japan’s largest shipping company — is one of the world’s leading ocean carriers of project cargo, heavy lift cargo, steel products, and bulk cargo.

Established on 1 October 2013 through the merger of NYK-HINODE LINE, LTD. and NYK Global Bulk Corporation, the company’s roots extend back over 100 years to November 1912.

NYK Bulk & Projects develops overseas markets through its global offices, which work in tandem with the worldwide network of the NYK Group and a number of agencies to meet all kinds of ocean transportation needs.

The company operates a fleet of 157 vessels having a total deadweight of 5,672,425 tons. This fleet includes 45 crane-equipped MPP and project vessels, two module vessels, and 110 Handy/Handy-Max vessels that can transport a wide range of cargo used in industry, agriculture, energy supply, and urban infrastructure — “bringing value to life,” as emphasized by the NYK slogan.

NYK Bulk & Projects provides on-demand services dedicated to big/heavy lot and multi-destination transportation as well as modularized cargo transportation, in addition to traditional semi-liner services and bulk services.

The company is devoted to HSEQ (Health, Safety, Environment, and Quality) management, and key vessels and divisions are all ISO9001/14001 and OHSAS18001 certified.
