World Wide Logistics has been appointed as new member for Northern China and Hong Kong. Jakarta-headquartered Indonesia Project Logistics has been named PPG member for Indonesia. Global Container International has joined the PPG network as its Singaporean representative.

Kevin Stephens, PPG general manager, congratulated the new members on their appointments. He also commended them for their support and interest in the career development of their staff through training and education.
