In response to the earthquake that occurred in Nepal on April 25, the NYK Group has started to collect and match donations from executives and employees throughout the group to aid those affected. NYK has deep compassion for those harmed by this natural disaster.
In 2004, the NYK Group established the NYK Group–JPF Joint Aid Supplies Transportation Projects with Japan Platform (JPF)* to support the quick recovery of areas impacted by disasters, and the group has since provided free ocean transport when requested by JPF.
NYK offers its wishes for a quick recovery.
*Japan Platform (JPF)
An international humanitarian assistance organization founded to provide quick and effective emergency relief during natural disasters and refugee situations. JPF activities are carried out in partnership with NGOs, the Japanese government, and the business community, all working together to draw on the resources and unique features of each sector.

NYKCool has its headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden and overseas representations in Chile, New Zealand, South Africa and USA. The company operates a fleet of 25 vessels trading worldwide.
NYKCool will change name to Cool Carriers AB and will continue to handle the commercial operation of the entire fleet. Baltic Reefers will take over as from Sep 1, 2014.
Mr. Boris Gersling, CEO of NYKCool / Cool Carriers, heading a team of dedicated specialists in Stockholm as well as its overseas representations, says: “Cool Carriers will continue its commercial operation unchanged and operate independently from Baltic Reefers. The new ownership situation, with an owner focusing on the specialized reefer segment, gives Cool Carriers a good opportunity to further prosper in this segment.”
Mr. Boris Gersling, CEO in the company since 2009 will continue in his position as will the rest of the team.
“In short it´s business as usual, but under new ownership”, Mr. Gersling concludes.
