KLSM President Mr. S Maeda
"K" Line Ship Management (India) Pvt Ltd, Mumbai is proud to announce that we are now an ISO certified company since 27th August 2007.
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), now known as K-Line Energy Ship Management Co.,Ltd (K-ENE Tokyo) w.e.f. 01/April/2018. The KLSM Tokyo, and now K-ENE 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 ( New Name K-ENE 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 ( New Name K-ENE 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 at that point in time. Over the years since then, staff changes have taken place as and when that became necessary, including the CEO & MD – Capt Takehiko Ibusuki was succeeded by Capt Koji Higashijima, from 2013 to 2017, and then it was decided to hand over command to an Indian. Capt Sudhir K. Goyal, a long serving Master Mariner with KLSM, is the present CEO & MD, having a total staff strength of 20 – which includes the Training Division, The Ship Management Division.

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

As of April 2018, there are 23 vessels with Indian Command, with varying number of Indian Officers & Ratings serving with K-ENE Tokyo. In total, K-ENE Tokyo is employing 427 Seafarers, which includes Officers, Ratings, and Trainees, on board their diversified fleet of LNG Carriers, LPG & Ammonia Carriers, VLCC’s, Aframax Tankers, Product Carrier, as well as having a few Seafarers serving on latest Post-Panamax Container Carriers. Management of all types of vessels has been our forte, and we have been continuously expanding and upgrading for a number of years, and that process continues even today. The painful period of global economic meltdown had, admittedly, put a brake on the expansion for a few years, but things are looking up now, as we at KLSM India are striving hard to keep up the pace, meet the requirements, and provide a good complement of Competent, Skillful, and Professionally qualified Seafarers.

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, and IMS Goa.

KLSM (India) plays an important role in overall manning situation of K-ENE 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 our Training Division. And, we at KLSM (India), are focused on the job of ensuring skillful seafarers on board the vessels managed by K-ENE Tokyo, and KLSM Singapore. We try our best, to provide a stress free working environment to the Seafarers on board, and assist their families in case of any such requirement – which we believe is a “Win-Win” situation for all stakeholders. Various welfare measures have been adopted over the years, promoting a sense of security, and a sense of belonging – besides developing trust between the Company, and it’s workforce.
