"K" Line Ship Management (India) Pvt Ltd, Mumbai is proud to announce that we are now an ISO certified company since 27th August 2007.
First branch office in Chennai
"K" Line Ship Management Company (India) Pvt Limited (KLSM India) is steaming full ahead and spreading its wings in to reach areas beyond the shores of Mumbai.

K-Line Ship Management (India) Pvt Ltd was established on 08/March/2007 as a 100% owned subsidiary of “K”-Line Ship Management Co.,Ltd, Tokyo (KLSM Tokyo). The KLSM Tokyo has had , and continues to have a committed relationship with Indian Seafarers, who have been employed on board their vessels since 1997, through a separate agreement with Manning Agents In India.

KLSM (India), as we are popularly known amongst our staff, was nurtured before it’s birth, as a Liaison Office of it’s parent KLSM Tokyo, between 2004 and 2007. The status of “Mumbai Liaison Office” (as it was known those days) was upgraded into a Fully Owned Subsidiary of KLSM Tokyo, and aptly christened as “K”-Line Ship Management (India) Pvt Ltd. The operations under the new identity started w.e.f 01/May/2007 under the leadership of it’s CEO & MD Capt Takehiko Ibusuki, assisted by a staff strength of 13 (as on date). Having started from Mumbai, KLSM India increased it’s presence by establishing a Branch Office in Chennai, in order to be closer to the Seafarers from the southern region. The KLSM India, Chennai Branch started functioning from 07/August/2008.

The parent company, KLSM Tokyo, have appointed Manning Agents in India for Recruitment & Placement of Indian Seafarers, namely m/s “K” Steamship Agencies Pvt Ltd (Popularly called “KSMS”).

At present, there are 18 vessels with Indian Command, with varying number of Indian Officers & Ratings serving with KLSM. In total, KLSM Tokyo is employing 316 Officers, 121 Ratings, and 126 Trainees ( as on 01/Jul/2012 ) on board their diversified fleet of Post-Panamax Container Ships, Aframax Tankers, VLCC’s, and LPG Carriers. Management of all types of vessels has been our forte, and we have been continuously expanding and upgrading for a number of years until early 2012. It is only during the last few months that the pains of global economic conditions have put the expansion on a pause mode.

The hiring and training of our staff is done professionally, and the selection of our future generation of Managers, is at the level of Deck Cadets & Junior Engineers, who are selected through a rigorous On-Campus selection procedure, from the renowned training institutes like Tolani Maritime Institute, Training Ship Rahman, VELS, AMET, and Cochin Shipyard.

KLSM (India) plays an important role in overall manning situation of KLSM Tokyo & KLSM Singapore (another subsidiary of KLSM Tokyo), concerning Indian Seafarers, by ensuring that the pool officers are properly qualified and geared up to meet the demands of modern day shipping. In-house skill development training is provided by the experienced faculty at “K”-Line Maritime Academy (India), popularly known as KLMA (India). And, we at KLSM (India) are focused on the job of ensuring skillful seafarers to the vessels managed by KLSM Tokyo, and on the job to ensure that those seafarers and their families are well taken care of, while the seafarers are working on board the vessels – a “Win-Win” situation for all stakeholders.
