The president and CEO of TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. Junichiro Ikeda made an announcement on 23rd January that the MOL-operated car carrier Grand Orion with capacity for 6,400 standard passenger cars called at the Cambodian Port of Sihanoukville.

The Grand Orion discharged approximately 12,000 tons of construction machinery and was the first MOL-operated car carrier to call at a Cambodian port. To mark this prestigious occasion, Grand Orion Capt. Denis C. De la Peña received a memento from management at the Sihanoukville Autonomous Port.

Cambodia is currently experiencing massive growth in motorization across the country, resulting in an increased demand for both brand-new and second-hand imported cars. This growth will create continued demand for regular ocean transportation service by car carriers.

In May 2018, with assistance from the Japanese government, a newly built multipurpose terminal that accommodates large-size cargo ships started operation. MOL considers their first ever call an important first step to meet the future demand.
