Kumiai Navigation (Pte) Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kumiai Senpaku Co., Ltd., a leading independent shipowner in Japan.
We were established in Singapore in 1995 with the aim of strengthening the international competitiveness of the entire Kumiai Senpaku Group, and to expand from domestic shipping in Japan to international shipping as part of the globalization in the shipping industry. Singapore was chosen because of its strategic location in the world’s shipping industry.
We currently own 18 vessels, but with more new vessels in the pipeline, we are expanding significantly and globally for the Kumiai Group and making an exciting contribution to the development of the world’s shipping industry.
