NYK Opens New Planning Center in Kumamoto

September 1, 2014

Kumamoto office of Kozo Keikaku Engineering Inc.

On September 1, 2014, NYK and Kozo Keikaku Engineering Inc. (head office: Tokyo; president: Shota Hattori) established a stowage planning center for container shipping at the Kumamoto office of Kozo Keikaku Engineering Inc. in Ozu town, Kumamoto prefecture, Japan.
The task of container stowage planning will be transferred from NYK’s office in Singapore by the end of March 2015. The new center in Kumamoto will play a central role in the stowage planning of NYK’s containerships in the Asian region, in addition to cooperation with container terminals at calling ports. Moreover, the all-Japanese staff in Kumamoto will aim to further improve operational quality.
We will make every effort to provide stable value-added services by fusing the NYK Group’s on-site capabilities with Kozo Keikaku Engineering’s operations research techniques and the data-analysis technology that the engineering firm has cultivated over many years.
A ceremony to commemorate the opening of this new planning center will be held in Kumamoto city on September 12.
The NYK Group will continue its efforts to pursue differentiation by blending the technological expertise from inside the group with that from outside the group to achieve the goals indicated in the group's medium-term management plan “More Than Shipping 2018.”
