EUKOR is one of the world¡¯s largest shipping companies specialized in transporting automobiles and other rolling cargo. We deliver tailor-made ocean transportation and logistics services of the highest quality to the global automotive industry. Our base is the export of Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors from their plants in Korea and around the world, but we also serve most of the other global automotive leaders including BMW, Caterpillar, Daimler Benz, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Scania, Suzuki, Volkswagen and Volvo.
EUKOR directly operates above 90 specialized vessels, and has further ships on short-term arrangements at any given point of time - annually transporting 3.6 million cars to 220 different ports in 150 countries, utilizing a global network of offices and agents.
Through continuous expansion of our route network, minimising transit times, utmost attention to cargo-handling quality and a strong dedication to cost savings for our customers, we strive towards delivering complete customer satisfaction. Ultimately, we aim to achieve our vision of becoming the best shipping company for the global automotive industry.
Since EUKOR¡¯s inception in 2002, following the acquisition of the car carrier division of Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), we believe we have managed to combine the best of what Korea and Europe have to offer. Having Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors as shareholders (20%) gives us a unique growth platform within the industry. Add to that the shareholdings of Norwegian shipping giant Wilh. Wilhelmsen (40%) with its vast shipping experience dating back to 1861 and leading Swedish shipping group Wallenius Lines (40%) ? pioneers in car carrier operations since the 1950s - and we have created a company with world class competencies.
With our global team of highly skilled transportation professionals, we confidently take on every challenge that the automotive industry requires. We, at EUKOR, firmly believe that nothing is impossible. The opportunity lies in the challenge.
