TOKYO-MOL Logistics (Japan) Co., Ltd. (President: Tetsuya Minato) today announced that its subsidiary MOL Logistics (Vietnam) Inc. (MLG Vietnam; General Director: Yoshitomi Hirano) has opened an office in Ben Tre Province.

Ben Tre is one of 13 provinces forming the Mekong Delta Area located about 86km southwest of Ho Chi Minh City. It has an abundance of land available for development, and two industrial parks have already been built in this area. Vietnam’s regional economies are growing rapidly, and manufacturers including automotive-related companies have been establishing more and more production plants in outlying areas.

With the opening of the new office in the Mekong Delta Area, which is far south of Ho Chi Minh City, MLG Vietnam has established a system to offer more customized logistics services such as import custom clearance for production machinery and plant facilities, domestic transport, and delivery and assembly for customers that have set up operations in the surrounding areas. The new office will help the company provide faster, smoother customs clearance and related services with the provincial customs office to further enhance service quality.

MLG Vietnam was established in November 2005. With the new office in Ben Tre, it has a total of six locations including the Ho Chi Minh headquarters and Hanoi Branch, as well as offices in Hai Phong, Hai Duong, and Thai Binh.

TOKYO-MOL Logistics (Japan) Co., Ltd. (President: Tetsuya Minato) today announced that its subsidiary in Thailand, MOL Logistics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (Managing Director: Tatsuya Ueki) has earned certification as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) from the Customs Department of Thailand.

Within the MOL Logistics Group in Japan, the headquarters was certified as an AEO forwarder for international transportation, and its subsidiary M.O. Air Logistics, Inc. as an Authorized Warehouse Operator. Overseas, MOL Logistics (Netherlands) B.V. was already certified as a Full AEO (freight forwarder, customs broker, warehouse operator), and MOL Logistics (Thailand) is the second overseas group company to acquire AEO certification, following MOL Logistics (Netherlands). A subsidiary in the U.S. acquired C-TPAT certification under a system similar to the AEO program.

MOL Logistics (Thailand) expects the AEO certification to speed up customs clearance for cargoes exported from Thailand and streamline customs procedures such as document examination and inspections, through mutual approval of the Customs Department of Thailand and the customs department of the importing nation.
In addition, MOL Group company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (Thailand) Co., Ltd. [MOL (Thailand)] has already earned the same AEO certification as MOL Logistics (Thailand). The company will meet a broad range of customer needs while sharing MOL (Thailand) facilities and services.

The MOL Logistics Group continually provides thorough security management in global logistics, refines its compliance system, strives to offer an ever-higher quality of services, and helps customers enhance their supply chain operations with safe, reliable logistics services.

TOKYO—MOL Logistics (Japan) Co., Ltd. (President: Tetsuya Minato) today announced that its subsidiary in Thailand, MOL Logistics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (MLG Thailand; Managing Director: Tatsuya Ueki) has upgraded its cross-border integrated trucking service centered on Thailand with convenient connections through ASEAN countries. Full-scale service began in early March.

Economic growth is expected to accelerate in Intra-Asia and ASEAN regions in advance of the inauguration of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015. In particular, manufacturers of components and parts have begun to rely on labor in surrounding nations. For example, many more companies will have their main plant in Thailand and branch plants in surrounding countries such as Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos. This trend will increase demand for intra-region transport such as transporting components and parts between the main plant and branch facilities.

MLG Thailand already offered a range of spot cross-border integrated trucking services between Thailand, and Malaysia/Cambodia/Laos/Myanmar. But to meet the anticipated increase in demand, the company established the Cross Border & Contract Logistics Section in November 2013 to further expand and enhance its service menu, and began full-scale service earlier this month.

MLG Thailand takes a proactive stance in expanding operations not only in its main fields of air freight, container ocean freight, and logistics, but also integrated transport and installation services of dangerous cargo, lengthy cargo, and heavyweight cargo. In many cases, cross-border overland transport can be shorter, faster, less costly, and more efficient than door-to-door ocean freight, especially in the Intra-ASEAN region. The company has already received a wide variety of inquiries from customers mainly in apparel, machinery, and infrastructure-related materials fields.

MLG Thailand continues to improve service quality in the future to support customers’ supply chains.
