The Company is also currently in negotiation with a party in Malaysia with the view of a potential cooperation with that party, which may involve the proposed acquisition of certain logistics businesses, or the collaboration of a logistics partnership business in Malaysia.

The Board is of the view that the above plans, if materialised, will provide synergies to allow the Group to form an integrated platform for the Company’s logistics business in Malaysia, thus enabling the Group to better provide end-to-end services to its customers with logistics needs, thereby increasing the Group’s competitive edge in relation to its competitors and enhancing the Group’s services to its customers,

...COSCO Shipping said.

The Group will also collaborate with other COSCO Shipping companies in Malaysia to achieve further synergies for its Malaysian businesses.
