Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (President & CEO: Junichiro Ikeda) acquired a 35.13% stake in PKT through investments in March 2017 and August 2018.
MOL Logistics (Malaysia) Sdn.

The conclusion of the agency contract will integrate PKT’s logistics network in Malaysia and MOL Logistics’ global network, allowing the companies to strengthen and expand both inbound and outbound international logistics services in Malaysia. Through its synergy with PKT, MOL Logistics will more effectively meet demand for logistics services in Malaysia and surrounding regions, where it anticipates stable growth in the future.
MOL Logistics continually develops and expands its worldwide logistics network, and offers high-quality total logistics services while working in close partnership with customers.
