Yamato Group and PT. Multisarana Bahteramandiri establishes
“PT. Yamato Indonesia Forwarding” in Indonesia

The Indonesia subsidiary company, PT. Yamato Indonesia (HQ: Jakarta, Indonesia; President-Director: Takeshi Arakawa, hereinafter referred to as "YI") under Yamato Holdings Co. Ltd. (HQ: Tokyo, Japan; President and Representative Director: Masaki Yamauchi, hereinafter referred to as "Yamato Holdings") and PT. Multisarana Bahteramandiri (HQ: Bekasi, Indonesia; President-Director: Rosita Verdooren, hereinafter referred to as "PT. MB") formally announce the establishment of a joint venture company, PT. Yamato Indonesia Forwarding (hereinafter referred to as "YIF") in the Republic of Indonesia.

1. Background and Purpose of Establishment

Indonesia is the world’s fourth largest country in terms of population size (more than 260 million people). Riding on the back of a stable government and fast-economic growth, Indonesia has tremendous potential not only as a manufacturing location, but also as a consumer market.

Yamato Group established YI, a fully-owned subsidiary, in Indonesia in September 2013. YI has been operating under the auspices of a consulting license since then. Arising from a relaxation in the foreign shareholding regulations for freight forwarding and logistics in May 2016, Yamato Group decided to establish a joint venture company with PT. MB for freight forwarding in Indonesia. With the establishment of the company, Yamato Group intends to accelerate business for both imports and exports henceforth.
