Who are we
MOL (Europe) B.V. is part of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) which has the world’s largest ocean shipping fleet. Backed by experience and technologies developed over 130 years, MOL moves today’s global economy.
MOL operates specialized bulk carriers for iron ore, coal, and woodchips; tankers that transport crude oil and LNG; car carriers; cruise ships; ferries and coastal liners; and containerships that deliver a variety of finished products as part of the largest and most diverse global network of liner and logistics services.
MOL Liner Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MOL. The company transports a wide variety of cargoes in international standard containers. The MOL Liner containerships also cover a global network of routes.
Container shipping is a fascinating industry. Almost everything you can buy in a shop or store has been shipped in a container. Whether it is fruit, car parts, clothing, toys, audio equipment or Christmas decorations: it was probably shipped in a container. Seasons, economies, politics and demography all have an impact on the volume of cargo being transported.
This is the playing field of global shipping lines. If you work in MOL, you will be part of an ever changing environment. In this competitive setting, shipping lines can distinguish themselves by high service levels. That is why MOL continuously adapts to changing circumstances and anticipates on future developments.
“Liner business” refers to the sailing schedule of the container ships, which operate fixed lines and times and calls at standard ports. In a way, it can be compared to a bus or train schedule.
MOL operates various lines between continents. In Europe, we focus on the Europe – Asia, Europe – Africa and Europe – North America lines or trades. The ships sail in a loop, calling at various ports in the departure and destination region and often at strategic ports along the way as well.
