MOL will restructure the dry bulk business divisions and establish the Dry Bulker Business Unit to most effectively implement business structural reforms to optimize the fleet portfolio and make more efficient use of management resources.

In addition, the company will establish the Energy Transport Business Unit as an organization that manages business divisions by ship type, to precisely meet diversified customer needs in energy-related industries.

Each business unit will deepen its ties within the organization as “One MOL” under the direction of the unit senior executives to enhance business performance and cost competitiveness, while proposing and providing optimal transport services to customers.
