Rotterdam/Seoul, 3 November 2021 – Royal Den Hartogh has identified the Asia Pacific (APAC) region as a key engine of growth and we have an aspirational ambition to be a leading regional tank operator offering one-stop deep-sea and intra-APAC logistics services. We are pleased to announce today that we are closer to this ambition with the merger of Den Hartogh with the MUTO group of companies in Korea, Thailand and Malaysia.
Our strong regional presence across 5 APAC offices, including Singapore and Shanghai, will propel Den Hartogh to be a leading intra-APAC logistics service provider including market leaderships in the new locations we now have local direct access. This growth milestone signifies our 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 re-branded as a member of Royal Den Hartogh Logistics.
With this merger, we are confident of further increasing customer satisfaction by providing tanks at the right place, right time and right quantities. Den Hartogh will be positioned to serve you better now in Seoul, Bangkok and Klang with more personalized and innovative logistics solutions.
We are here to grow in Asia. Grow with us.
