Major activities

Maximizing functional synergies in the field of transportation equipment leasing and strengthening our earnings base

In shipping, we have made general commercial ship business as our core platform, and are working to develop a stable future earnings base by evolving our business models for ship owning, operating and leasing, and expanding our business fields to LNG ship and energy logistics related business. We will also pursue business opportunities resulting from new trends, such as the tightening of environmental regulations, and growth and change in seaborne trade.

In aerospace, we will establish our presence as a global player in the industry and will aim to increase earnings by focusing on our aircraft leasing, aero engine leasing, freighter conversion, and helicopter and business jet sales. We are also providing support to the Mitsubishi Regional Jet project as a shareholder.

In the rail transportation field, our rolling stock leasing business, which we established in the U.S. in the 1990s, has now expanded into Europe and Russia. Demand is expected to grow for rail as an environmentally friendly logistics channel, and we aim to provide services that meet our customer's needs.
