TOKYO—Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. (MOL ) today announced the upgrade of its Asia-South Africa network with the two following changes:
 
MOL will meet customer needs by providing high-quality direct services and by providing variety of port coverage continuously.  MOL will join  new Asia and South Africa Service (ASA). Opening of the new route, linking Central and South China, Taiwan, South East Asia and South Africa, will start on April 8, 2012.

This service will offer direct inbound and outbound service between Central China, Taiwan and the South Africa region and strengthen the existing network in South Africa (Durban and Cape Town).
