Utilizing the specialized organizational functions of a general trading company in the ship business

Marubeni makes the most of its specialized organizational abilities, which only a general trading company can provide, in its ship business, including sale and purchase, chartering, ownership of merchant ships, and marine equipment, by organically integrating demands from business clients across the world, such as operators, ship owners, builders, and financial institutions.
