Merger helps Den Hartogh expand in Asia Pacific
The company said it has an aspirational ambition to be a leading regional tank operator offering one-stop, deep-sea and intra-APAC logistics services.
Den Hartogh added that it was closer to this ambition with the merger between Den Hartogh and the MUTO group of companies in Korea, Thailand and Malaysia.
A company spokesman said its strong regional presence across five APAC offices, including Singapore and Shanghai, would propel Den Hartogh to be a leading intra-APAC logistics service provider including market leaderships in the new locations.
He said: “This growth milestone signifies the commitment to the region in addition to our growing fleet of tank containers.”
MUTO Global Thailand and MBT Global Malaysia will be re-branded as Den Hartogh Thailand and Den Hartogh Malaysia respectively.
The MUTO Logix Korea branding will be retained and rebranded as a member of Royal Den Hartogh Logistics.
The spokesman added that with this merger, the company was confident of further increasing customer satisfaction by providing tanks at the right place, right time and right quantities.
He added: “Den Hartogh will be positioned to serve its customers better now in Seoul, Bangkok and Klang with more personalised and innovative logistics solutions.”
