Middle East Service


On the Middle East route, NYK-Hinode transports steel products, project cargoes, and general cargoes to Arabian Gulf ports; while our eastbound return voyages carry bulk cargoes to Japan and other countries. Among conventional vessel operators hauling cargoes from the Far East to the Middle East, NYK-Hinode ranks first in the number of deployed vessels. Our vessels of 9,000 to 30,000 DWT carry diverse cargoes; our heavy-lift vessels, for example, are capable of lifting up to 450 kilotons. NYK-Hinode makes full use of the seamanship and know-how it has accumulated over the years and applies that expertise in an unremitting effort to promote the Middle East service under the watchword of safe transport.
