   Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. (MOL) on Thursday announced the introduction of Vessel View VR to allow virtual visits to the VLCC Suzukasan.
   The Suzukasan, delivered Oct. 12, is the second vessel, following the car carrier Beluga Ace, to feature the virtual reality technology. Vessel View VR combines VR Solution, developed by NURVE Inc., with 360-degree photos and videos taken at various areas onboard.
   The Suzukasan can transport about 300,000 tons of crude oil in a single voyage. It takes a long time to visit every area on this huge vessel — 339.5 meters long and 60 meters wide, MOL said, pointing out that as a vessel carrying dangerous goods, safety rules are strict, particularly on deck, where any open flame and even electronic devices are prohibited. That makes it all the more difficult to keep records of everything during an in-person visit.
   MOL said Vessel View VR enables a virtual ship visit anytime and anywhere.
Since launching in Ireland in January 2012, Emirates has been supporting Irish companies of all sizes with their export programs, carrying more than 50,000 metric tons of cargo out of Dublin during that time, making us the number one carrier for air cargo from Ireland to the Middle East, Australia and China.
Spot container rates from Shanghai to Los Angeles were $2,274 per FEU as of Jan. 17, while rates from Shanghai to New York were $3,245 per FEU, up 67 percent and 13 percent year-over-year, respectively, according to Drewry’s World Container Index.
