Royal Den Hartogh Logistics and MUTO Group Announce Merger

Merger Royal Den Hartogh Logistics and MUTO group

Royal Den Hartogh Logistics has identified the Asia Pacific (APAC) region as a key engine of growth and has an aspirational ambition to be a leading regional tank operator offering one-stop deep-sea and intra-APAC logistics services. Den Hartogh is pleased to announce that it is closer to this ambition with the merger between Den Hartogh and the MUTO group of companies in Korea, Thailand and Malaysia.

Its strong regional presence across five 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 the company now has local direct access. 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.

With this merger, Den Hartogh is 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 its customers better now in Seoul, Bangkok and Klang with more personalized and innovative logistics solutions.

We are here to grow in Asia. Grow with us.
