TOKYO -- Japan Post looks to redraw its overseas strategy after stumbling on plans to strengthen corporate logistics services via Australian unit Toll Holdings.

Low resource prices have taken a toll on Australia's economy, eroding demand for logistics services. Toll's operating profit tumbled by more than two-thirds to 83 million Australian dollars ($62.8 million) for the April-December period, with operating revenue shrinking 7% to A$5.9 billion.
