Meiji Shipping Group
From 1911, our company has remained steadfast in its active expansion of business.
After the first oil crisis in 1973, the shipping industry underwent worldwide stagnation. This, coupled with the rise in shipbuilding costs, gradually lowered the international competitiveness of Japan's maritime industry.
In order to rebound, we focused combined employer-employee efforts on establishing a solid foundation for company growth and technological development. Owing to this, Meiji Shipping has always been at the helm of the industry.
None of our success, however, would have been attainable without the long-term trust of our clients.
We stand poised to expand our presence in the foreign market in hopes of redefining marine transport as it is known today throughout the world.
