Serving automakers: Japan’s Sojitz to offer logistics services in Indonesia
TOKYO — Japanese trading house Sojitz will expand operations in Indonesia, offering autoparts logistics services ranging from procurement and assembly to delivery.
The company aims to build a logistics network in Asia to meet customer needs more quickly.
In Indonesia, Sojitz has been importing and exporting autoparts materials. It recently set up a local unit in Jakarta and plans to establish a logistics base by year-end.
The company will procure components used in parts such as seats and wire harnesses, inspect them and have locally hired employees assemble them. It will deliver these products to Japanese automakers.
Sojitz plans to start similar operations in India and aims to win orders from 80 companies within three years in the two countries.
The Japanese company already handles these operations in Thailand, serving more than 300 customers.
