Globaltrans Woos MMK-Trans

Freight operator Globaltrans said Monday that it is in exclusive talks over potential acquisition of MMK-Trans, a subsidiary of steelmaker MMK.

"The potential acquisition of MMK-Trans is consistent with the group's strategy to seek out growth both organically and by means of selective acquisition," the company said.
