In the automobile transport business, NYK has operated transport services mainly for finished automobiles from Japan to overseas. Recently, NYK has effectively responded to the recent trend in the automobile industry to assemble overseas and customers' demand for trilateral transport. In addition, NYK strives to construct a firm infrastructure by establishing coastal transportation networks in Europe, China, and Southeast Asia, constructing and operating dedicated terminals for finished automobile transport in each area, and investing and developing inland transportation businesses.

NYK has also expanded transportation from overseas to Japan and transportation of heavy construction machines and used cars, and offers value-added services such as pre-delivery inspection (PDI) processing, which includes inspections before final delivery to dealers, supplying parts, and repairing assembled automobiles at terminals.
