What is LNG Transport?

We are proud to hold the highest market share in the LNG transport industry, safely and reliably supplying energy that is indispensable to industry and daily life.

Our LNG Division handles the LNG (liquefied natural gas) used by consumers, businesses, and industries. Our LNG transport services connect import entry points and domestic gas fields across the country to the satellite locations of our customers, maintaining our top domestic market shares of 100% for rail transport and about 40% for motor transport. Aware of our position as experts in the transport of LNG—a clean energy for which demand is only expected to increase—the entire JOT Group will continue working hard to supply LNG safely and reliably.

What is LNG Transport?

LNG Supply Scheme

We live up to the faith our customers place in us by combining truck transport together with our composite integrated transport, which leverages the respective advantages of railroads and automobiles.

In recent years, the demand for LNG for use by both consumers and industry has increased rapidly due to its highly stable price and the relatively low levels of CO2 emissions it produces when burned, compared with oil or coal. After commencing with the transport of LNG via tanker trucks in 1984, JOT Group implemented the country's first container rail transport system for the product in the year 2000. Building on our many years of experience in motor transport, we conduct truck transport as well as composite integrated transport, which makes the best use of each mode's advantages. In times of emergency such as those following a disaster, we meet the needs of our customers by offering multiple modes of transportation.
