TOKYO - Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Akimitsu Ashida) today announced that its subsidiary PT Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Indonesia (headquartered in Jakarta) has established a branch in Lampung. Operations will start on September 1.
Lampung is a province located in the south of Sumatra Island, ideally situated as a hub connecting Java and Sumatera. The port city of Panjang accommodates both passengers and cargo, providing a key link in the transportation of agricultural products, minerals, forest products, and seafood. Lampung, with a population of 7 million, has great potential to become a major center of MOL Group sales and operations.
