TOKYO—MOL Logistics (Japan) Co., Ltd. (MLG; President: Shuhei Togo) today announced that starting in January, its subsidiary in Thailand, MOL Logistics (Thailand) Co. Ltd.

Since its foundation in 1993, MLG Thailand has offered logistics services with a focus mainly on international air and ocean freight forwarding.
