Why NVOCC, not a shipping company?

What is an NVOCC?

A non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) is a forwarder that offers cargo transportation service by booking vessel space and arranging optimal routes to the destination, without owning ships or warehouses. Japan Trust has the capability to constantly secure vessel space at reasonable costs, which is one of the most important and crucial factors in the NVOCC business, based on its amicable relationships with many Japanese and overseas shipping companies, including alliance members and non-members.
