The ship-owning business of Sojitz group started in 1963 when Kokusai Kisen Kabushiki Kaisha was established. Ever since, we have been keeping our own fleet and built up solid know-how and expertises in this field.
Today, as a highly experienced ship manager providing a complete range of integrated marine service, SOMEC manages and/or operates the vessels for our own customers as well as Sojitz group of companies.
Management staff has profound experience in all aspects of the ship management, general marine engineering, accounting, crewing and operations management.

In office, at shipyard or at sea, the commitment to maintaining the high standard of safety and environmental protection is the most important part of our business.
