MOL consolidates logistics business under new brand

Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has announced that it will expand its NVOCC business under the new unified brand name MOL Worldwide Logistics.

Following a consolidation in both operation and management of its logistics business in April, MOL is planning to establish a new company in Hong Kong to be the headquarters of the group’s NVOCC business in July.

The new company will centralise marketing, procurement, network operations, and global account management under the new name to better serve both existing and new customers for its NVOCC service.

“MOL Worldwide Logistics will aggressively tackle with further enhancement and differentiation of our service using ICT technologies such as Robotic Process Automation that can streamline routine data input tasks, improve data accuracy and boost labor efficiency and reduce cost, and real time cargo tracking by mobile using GPS devices placed in containers,” MOL said in a release.
