From April 2022, Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE) and Daito Corporation (Daito) will operate the first dedicated finished vehicle terminal in Japan, at Yokohama Daikoku C-4 Terminal as reported by ‘K” Line.
On April 5th, “IVORY ARROW,” a pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) operated by “K” LINE, made its inaugural call at the terminal. We had a safety prayer service with the terminal operators and an opening celebration with several associated parties on April 15th.
In order to meet a variety of purposes, the terminal is used not only as an export and transhipment base for finished cars (new and used vehicles) but also to handle a wide variety of vehicles such as break-bulk cargoes by utilising a work facility with a big roof in the terminal. Furthermore, the terminal will use electricity supplied from renewable energy sources, which emit nearly no CO2.
The terminal will purchase 100% wind-generated renewable energy from UPDATER Corporation’s “Minna-Denryoku” blockchain-based electricity traceability service (a service for designating the power plants from which electricity is acquired). Last November, “K” LINE updated a section of our long-term environmental guideline, “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050″ (Note 1), and set a new aim for 2050: “The challenge of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.” We will work to increase our corporate value by contributing to the economy and society’s long-term sustainability while also safeguarding the environment through our business activities.
