The Aphrodite Leader, a Pure Car & Truck Carrier (PCTC) is the first vessel under Wallem Ship Management to come under the Japanese Flag.
The Aphrodite Leader completed the various inspections, audits and surveys in accordance with the Japanese Flag requirements. The vessel then officially changed over to Japanese Flag upon receipt of the statutory certificates from the Japanese Government and Class NK.
This marks a positive milestone as Wallem is now one of just a few international ship managers capable of managing Japanese Flag vessels.
It is a clear testament to our strong safety culture, commitment to quality and efficient operations. Wallem is dedicated to continuing supporting our Japanese customers with technical and ship management services for a range of vessel types including car carriers, tankers and container vessels.
Wallem Ship Management is fully accredited to do full technical management for Japanese flag vessels with Class NK, including the provision of the crew with fully compliant Wallem Professional seafarers meeting the stringent Japanese flag requirements.
