Koyo Kaiun is an independent and widely known shipping company in Japan established in 1949. Oil was emerging and replacing coal as the major energy source in those days, and the company aspired to be an independent domestic coastal tanker operator. During the rapid economic expansion of 1960’s and 1970’s the company had grown to be among the top domestic coastal tanker operators.
However, following the Japan’s so-called “”lost decade”” Koyo Kaiun shut down its domestic coastal tanker division in March 2009. This has allowed it to concentrate its resources to growing international chemical tanker business, which it launched in 1966.
