December 26, 2014
NYK Auto Logistics India Pvt. Ltd. (NALI),* an NYK Group company, has decided to operate a finished-car logistics terminal with Gujarat Pipavav Port Ltd. (APM Terminals Pipavav)** from June 2015 at Pipavav port in the state of Gujarat, which is located in the northwestern part of India.

The NYK Group will take advantage of the "creative solutions" initiated in the company’s "More Than Shipping 2018" medium-term management plan to provide higher quality finished-car services in the expanding Indian finished-car-logistics market.
