Local reports said yesterday (26 October) that the move is part of a group reorganisation.

The consolidated company will take over the sales and marketing functions performed by Coca-Cola National Sales and Coca-Cola Japan.

Kansai Logistics Co in Settsu, Osaka prefecture, western Japan, Mikasa Logistic Co in Tenri, Nara prefecture, central Japan, and Coca-Cola West Japan Logistics Co in Hiroshima, southern Japan are set to merge. The latter will absorb the first two subsidiaries and will be renamed Coca-Cola West Logistics Co., the news service said.
