"K" Line provides marine transport of crude oil, oil products, LPG and other petrochemical products.
Japan relies on imports for nearly 100% of its crude oil procurement. "K" Line has made the prevention of oil spills and other accidents its highest priority for more than 70 years since it entered the oil tanker services in 1934, providing top-class services to customers around the world by conducting meticulous and safe navigation and cargo operations.
Rigorous standards for ship management systems and crew skills are required globally for the transport of crude oil and petroleum products, which are hazardous substances. In line with such requirements, all of "K" Line's crude oil tankers and product tankers have been double-hulled since 2003, and we constantly take measures such as conducting various marine and onshore training and oil spill exercises to raise skills with the aim of preventing accidents and minimizing harm.
