In 1990, Euro Marine Carrier B.V. (EMC) was established in Amsterdam, Netherlands by its three owners, Nissan Motor Car Carrier (51%), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (24.5%) and Höegh Autoliners (24.5%).

In 2011, after a change in share ownership, the assets of EMC were transferred to Euro Marine Logistics, which was based in Wemmel, Belgium and a venture between Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and Hoegh Autoliners.[1]

Today the company specializes in the domestic maritime transport and distribution of cargo such as automobiles, trucks, trailers, Mafi roll trailers, heavy construction machineries and further types of rolling freight.


EML operates a fleet of fifteen ships with capacity of 33,000 CEU on six shipping routes.[2] It serves 27 commercial ports in 17 different countries, operating in the Mediterranean Sea, North Sea and Baltic Sea. The company transported 950,000 CEU in 2015.[3]


Short sea shipping is the most ecological and cheapest mode of transportation.[4] EML sues ultra-low-sulfur diesel and is part of the Trident Alliance.
