The ferry business plays an important role in the marine transport between Hokkaido and Honshu. We have transporting cargos, cars and passengers by sea on the Hakodate to Aomori and Hakodate to Oma routes. We also lend ferries to the operators of the relevant routes on the Tomakomai to Hachinohe and Tomakomai to Oarai routes.
As we are entrusted with human safety and cargos, we are committed to operating our vessels with the utmost safety and security in mind through acquiring the International Safety Management Code (ISM Code) and introducing Japan’s first fire extinguishing plan. We have responded to environmental issues with the introduction of new ships to improve fuel efficiency and the use of LED lighting in the terminal. In addition, all ferries newly launched after the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake have been enhanced to provide useful functions when the disaster strikes again, such as housing for wounded people, water supply and electricity supply to shores. Furthermore, we are participating a joint training with DMATs (Disaster Medical Assistance Teams) to make a greater contribution to society.
As an important social logistics infrastructure for tourism and logistics between Honshu and Hokkaido, we aim to be a company that can contribute to the revitalization and development of the Tsugaru Kaikyo area, and will continue to develop our business with a focus on contributing to the local community.
