NYK transports six relief cars to Africa as part of aid works
Update Time£º2013-3-11 From: Internet
NYK has provided free ocean transport for six automobiles to deliver them to Mombasa, Kenya, and Durban, South Africa. The cars had been used in Japan to support recovery activities in the wake of the 2011 earthquake that devastated much of northeast Japan in March 2011.
Immediately following the Japan earthquake, the vehicles were donated by Nissan Motor Co, to several international humanitarian assistance organisations affiliated with Japan Platform.
The cars were overseas models initially built for the United Nations, so after temporary permission for the automobiles to be driven in Japan expired in June 2012, NYK transported the vehicles from Japan to Africa so that they could be used in the humanitarian assistance activities on the continent.
The cars were loaded on the shipping company's car carrier, Sirius Leader, and after arriving in Mombasa and Durban the automobiles were sent to Nairobi, Kenya; Juba, South Sudan; and Harare, Zimbabwe.
