Hyundai Glovis set-up world's first EV specialized marine transportaion solutions
Hyundai Glovis, one of the largest logistics companies in South Korea, announced they have established a specialized EV handling solution for Car carrier shipping to cope with rapidly spreading EV shipping market.
Hyundai Glovis has recently set a new manual for EV ocean transportation and applied their specialized solution in loading-shipping-unloading process. Since EV has different characteristics from conventional internal combustion vehicles, it requires a new customized EV handling solution.
As a result, Hyundai Glovis has provided a specialized EV ocean transportation service for the first time in the global car carrier market, which has been focused on the transportation of internal combustion engine vehicles.
◆ Set up specialized loading and unloading manual for EV…sharing shipping information
In general, EVs have a wide battery cell installed at the bottom of the vehicle, requiring careful attention different from conventional internal combustion engine vehicles. Accordingly, Hyundai Glovis has established a shipping guide tailored to the characteristics of EVs and applied it to the work place.
First of all, Hyundai Glovis provide EV customized management service by marking ‘EV’ on shipping request to distinguish from combustion vehicle.
Also, Hyundai Glovis has been developing the customized system to share EV condition/SOC(state of charge)/other shipper’s requesting information in advance automatically to shipper via the system in developing.
This shared information shall be the groundwork to achieve a safe loading/unloading process. Loaded vehicles are subject to under constant checking procedure that includes battery condition, exterior, and etc. to keep our utmost cargo quality.
Collective condition data including temperature and humidity of loading deck, and battery consumption during transportation are shared on the shipper side. These data can be a useful tool to set a battery SOC guide before loading EVs.
◆ MOU with prominent ship-classification for credibility / Expecting high quality ocean transportation
Hyundai Glovis set the EV emergency manual and made quarterly EV emergency training mandatory.
Recently Hyundai Glovis has signed an MOU with Korean Resister for JDP of safe sea transportation of EV with and both parties sympathized each other to cooperate improvement/advancement of EV car carrier shipping.
It is expected to improve specific handling guide for EV in terms of ship stability/safety by this MOU. Also, it is under development for installation of safety equipment and specialized/customizing EV equipment for new built vessel as well.
In cooperation with Korean Register, one of the best seven ship-classification in the world and authorized by the South Korean Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, Hyundai Glovis expects to top up its trust and credibility.
Hyundai Glovis expects that they will be able to secure safer service by adopting customized EV ocean transportation solution. They are planning to provide the best EV-specialized management service to customers during loading-ocean shipping-unloading process.
Hyundai Glovis plans to target not only current ordinary OEM makers but also new EV makers.
Compared to current established OEM makers, new EV makers may have short logistics experience. It is Hyundai Glovis's role to provide one-stop service, that is all-inclusive terminal/land/sea transportation.
◆ A rapid paradigm shift in Vehicle industry / Wide deep-sea service by 90 car-carrier-fleet
Hyundai Glovis, one of the largest logistics companies in south Korea, leading EV ocean transportation based on 90 car-carrier fleet and 80 global networks assumed to occupy about 40% share in EV ocean transportation market by carrying 180,000 EVs last year.
It is Hyundai Glovis's concern to set up a specialized EV ocean transportation for preemptive response in the era of EV shift.
The UK laid out plans to phase out the sale of new cars and vans run on traditional fuels by 2030, 5 years earlier than the original plan. China and France are determined to stop producing internal combustion cars as well (China from 2035, and France from 2040) In reference to this trend, global vehicle makers are also planning to stop producing internal combustion cars.
Based on this trend, EV markets have been grown up rapidly. In this year expected sales of EVs in the world might be more than 2.5 million, according to a global consulting firm (Deloitte).
Also it is expected that EV car market will grow up 29% annually in the next 10 years(11.2 million units in 2025 and 31.1 million units in 2030.)
Hyundai Glovis plans to expand the record of EV ocean transportation based on the competitiveness of the new set up EV handling solution.
Hyundai Glovis set up new EV-specialized service to meet the customer's needs in changing trend of automobile industry and they will show competitiveness to lead global car carrier market.
