Our History

History: from transport company to international logistic service provider.

MOL Logistics’ history started in the early 20th century. The Dutch company was founded in 1919 as Wassing BV, a genuine Tilburg transport company. After the start the company grows significantly and expands its range of products and services. In 1990 the family business attracts the attention of the Japan based Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, who decided to take over the company. It lasts until the turn of the century before Wassing BV changes its name into MOL Logistics (Netherlands) BV. After the year 2000 MOL Logistics keeps continuing to innovate in order to develop and fullfill the demand of their customers, as a full subsidary of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines. Untill now innovation is one of our mayor priorities.
