Disaster Relief:NYK Group - JPF Joint Aid Supplies Transportation Projects

NYK Group - JPF Joint Aid Supplies Transportation Projects

NYK has launched the NYK Group-JPF Joint Aid Supplies Transportation Project in cooperation with Japan Platform (JPF), an international humanitarian assistance organization. The project promotes activities that provide support to victims of large natural disasters. The launch of the project was first inspired when the NYK Group and JPF jointly provided emergency relief to victims of the immense earthquake that occurred off the northern tip of Sumatra, Indonesia, and the tremendous damage in Southeast and South Asia that resulted from the subsequent tsunami on December 26, 2004.

In this project, first, the nongovernmental organizations (NGO) who participate in the JPF program and JPF members conduct intensive preliminary assessments to determine what aid supplies are required by victims. Based on the assessment, NYK transports emergency aid commodities free of charge on its containerships to a port nearby the disaster site. Next, JPF/NGO members deliver emergency supplies to those in need. For feedback after the delivery of supplies to the affected area, NYK invites JPF and NGO members to report on the site and distribution conditions. For more information about our emergency transport assistance, please refer to Aid Activities.
