Container Terminal Business

The first container ships made their debut with trans-Atlantic service in April 1966. This constituted a revolutionary event for marine transportation, especially for Japanese shipping companies who are playing a vital role in supporting the Japanese economy which was heavily dependent on international trade. The containerization of marine transportation made it possible for the cargo handling operation which had been carried out largely by manual labor, to be mechanized with improved safety and speed and with higher efficiency for greater volume. Another major advantage afforded by containerized shipping is safer, easier door-to-door service between the shipping point and the destination. Transportation by container has spread rapidly as the primary means of international transportation, a direct result of these advantages. Today, the majority of ocean-going vessels operating in the major shipping lanes of the world are containerized. Presently, our company, as a fully -authorized terminal operator in Yokohama and Tokyo Ports for Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. is in charge of Tokyo Ohi Container terminal and Yokohama Minami-honmoku Container Terminal. Ohi Container Terminal features the world's first computerized terminal operation system, introduced for the integrated control of container reception, delivery, storage and loading onto vessels, as well as for the automatic control of container handling machines in the container yards, which permits the fast and efficient handling of large numbers of containers. We have also expanded the capacity of container handling equipment in order to cope with the huge container vessels carrying the equivalent of as many as 6,500 TEU containers, which are becoming increasingly popular.
