Technical operation of Chemical Tankers requires sophisticated knowledge to manage the additional health and environmental hazards, which the cargo poses. We take pride in managing these hazards and operate the fleet in a safe, efficient and economical manner.
We have confidence that our crew who man these vessels can take on such a challenge, a confidence which has been built by our unprecedented training program, detailed knowledge of issues concerning Chemical cargo and the sophisticated tankers in which it is carried as well as various regulations affecting the trade.
Any accident of a chemical tanker would threaten the safety of human lives and potentially the marine environment.
The philosophy of MOL Chemical Tankers Group is “Where there is safety, there is prosperity”.‘Safety’ is a culture inculcated in each and every member of our group, both onboard and in our worldwide offices.
Having a strong focus on chemical tanker business, MOL Chemical Tankers handles many cargo types which can be flammable, corrosive, and/or toxic and need to be handled properly according to restrictions. Any accident of a chemical tanker would threaten the safety of human lives and potentially the marine environment. It is essential to have the knowledge of special characteristics of each cargo type as well as the high level of know-how related to specific appropriate procedures in handling the cargo.
At MOL Chemical Tankers, including the crew in-charge of operation are well-versed in the characteristics of several hundred kinds of cargo types and are able to meet charterers’ strict standards. Our company always put a remarkable focus on staff training and engages various activities to raise safety awareness every year.
Five business bases with one-stop service.
Smooth global operation is achieved with our well-established service network supported currently by five business offices:
This one-stop global service network ensures effective communication and unifies operation among the overseas offices under MOL Chemical Tankers It enables us to stay updated of each voyage by closely exchanging information and also to respond efficiently to customers’ requests or any change in circumstances. Our global offices are readily approachable by our overseas customers and we work together to achieve customers’ full satisfaction.
This management strategy allows MOL Chemical Tankers to operate its chemical tankers safely and efficiently, creating a source of competitiveness.
One key contributing factor to MOL Chemical Tankers’s achievements is our in-house ship management capability. Currently, ship management is undertaken by two subsidiaries specialising in chemical tankers, namely Unix Line in Singapore and TM Ship Management in Korea.
This in-house ship management strategy allows MOL Chemical Tankers to operate its chemical tankers safely and efficiently, creating a source of competitiveness. The quality of ship management is reliant on our people, including marine and technical superintendents who possess rich experience and high technical ability to oversee safety from land and seafarers who are in charge of operation and cargo handling.
Singapore is an optimal location for ship management, with a great source of business information. Since most of MOL Chemical Tankers’s fleet calls at Singapore, this makes it easy for our ship management companies to directly confirm the status of their vessels and to hold direct dialogues with their crews. In addition, Singapore also provides a great pool of human resources in ship management such as superintendents as well as an active market for ship repairs and marine equipment. Unix Line has been in Singapore since the 90’s and in the year 2012, headquarter of MOL Chemical Tankers was shifted from Tokyo to Singapore to further this holistic approach.
MOL Chemical Tankers has built its business on the trust of its strong customer base in many parts of the world.
Our group is very conscious of the importance of our role in every customer’ supply chain and is always devoting to achieve customers’ full satisfaction through safe and timely operation.
For example, for one of our core businesses – parcel transport, MOL Chemical Tankers strives to meet customers’ needs by providing a wide range of transport sizes from 500-ton lots to 20,000-ton lots.
Over the years, the group’s commitment made to our customers has earned us the reputation of a reliable and responsible carrier. Our charterers’ recognition and appreciation of the quality services is evident from our long-term relationship and the growing businesses which they have entrusted to us.
Most of our ships are equipped with stainless steel tanks that are highly resistant to corrosion and can take on any type of cargo shipped in bulk by sea, making MOL Chemical Tankers third position in the world in terms of transport capacity via stainless steel tanks.
In addition, all owned vessels in our fleet are built in Japanese shipyards, which are globally well-known for the expertise and technic, bringing high assurance in the quality of our vessels.
