Mazda Logistics and Yusen (Asia), a joint venture formed by Yusen Logistics Thailand and Mazda Logistics, has started providing full-scale automotive spare parts logistic services on behalf of Mazda Motor Corporation in Thailand. 

MLYA aims to provide automotive spare parts logistic services on behalf of Mazda in roughly 100 countries, including Thailand and other ASEAN countries, as well as Australia. Its main operations include warehouse management of automotive parts (storage, packing, picking, loading/unloading), distribution, customs clearance, import/export, air and ocean freight forwarding. It provides logistics services from its 22,281 m2 warehouse in the Bangna district of Bangkok.

Launched in January 2013, MLYA began warehouse operations in July of that year, with collection and delivery services initiated in Thailand. It also started full-scale export operations in January 2015, gradually expanding its businesses. 

Hidesuke Takesue, president of Mazda Sales in Thailand, said: “In the automotive business, enhancement of the system for spare parts provision is an extremely important factor that significantly affects the image and reliability of a brand. With the full-scale operations of MLYA, we have implemented a structure that can meet and exceed customer expectations in the rapidly expanding Asia and Oceania region.”

MLYA will strive to improve the quality of its operations to provide logistics support to the spare parts business of Mazda Motor Corp.

The automotive business is a sector targeted for enhancement under the Yusen Logistics Group’s Medium-Term Business Plan, entitled “GO FORWARD, Yusen Logistics -Next Challenges-." The company will combine its expertise in automotive logistics with its warehouse and global network, which is one of the largest among Japanese logistics companies, to offer tailored automotive logistics services that suit the needs of customers.
