Message from Chief Executive Officer

MOL Chemical Tankers was founded in 1972, and has been a member of the Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Group since 1996. Over its nearly 50-year history, the company has grown as a specialist in the marine transportation of liquid chemicals and vegetable oils. In 2012, the head office was moved to Singapore, which has achieved remarkable growth as a hub port for marine transportation. Since then, we have continuously worked targeted towards strengthening our operations and sales organization in order to provide better transportation services to our customers.

Our company took important steps in 2019 to ensure its continued growth. First, the acquisition of Nordic Tankers, a Danish chemical tanker operator, significantly strengthened our service network in the Atlantic Ocean. With this acquisition, we have expanded our sales network to include Copenhagen, Stamford, and Bogotá, which, in addition to our existing offices in Singapore, Tokyo, London, Houston and Dubai means that our total number of locations worldwide is now eight. We have also formed a capital alliance with Den Hartogh, a leading Dutch tank container company, and are developing a tank terminal in Antwerp Port together with a local company, Sea-tank. Our goal is to become a comprehensive chemical logistics provider able to respond to the diverse needs of our customers. This we will do by expanding our marine transportation services using stainless steel chemical tankers, as well as developing our terminal business in small land-based shipments and major hub ports.

Our company is committed to provide safe and reliable transportation services under the doctrine: “Where there is safety, there is prosperity”. The operation of chemical tankers requires compliance with international regulations, complete awareness and protection of the environment, as well as high quality and safety management. In addition, the company needs to comply with the various handling requirements set by customers. As a leading company in the chemical transportation industry with advanced navigation and ship management technologies, we have earned the trust of our customers over many years of reliable services, and we will continue to seek ways to further improving our services.
