As part of the company re-organization and due to its current size, it was realized to formally incorporate the company under the name and title of 'Tron Global Private Ltd'. This was not a mere legal process, but also company's brand and vision was revised. In coming years, company is looking forward to expand its offices beyond Pakistan and have presence globally. Moreover, in order to strengthen the company's global reach, Tron Global Private Limited was enrolled into WCA (InterGlobal). The leading global network of independent freight forwarders.
by 2000, the Freight Forwarding Industry in Pakistan had fully matured. However It didn't have any of the Govt. affiliated body to represent it. ACAAP (air cargo agents association of pakistan) had existed long before than that, but as the name might suggest, it only represented air cargo agents, rather than the entire freight forwarding Industry in Pakistan. Hence PIFFA (Pakistan International Freight Forwarders Association) was formed, which is duly affiliated with the ministry of commerce. And our company founder had the honor to serve for three consecutive years as the Executive Committee Member and Director of the PIFFA.
Until now, company's primary service was customs clearance and handling local deliveries. In late 90s Freight Forwarding Industry in Pakistan was booming. More particularity importers who were our primary customers were becoming aware of their freight costs and taking the control of their shipments from the overseas supplier warehouse to their door step (buyer's nomination). Realizing the potential and needs of our customers, an independent freight forwarding division was founded in 1998. Which not only helped the company reach even bigger market and increase its revenues but also offered our customers one-window-operations for their shipments. Since then we handle everything from pickup in supplier warehouse in an overseas country to delivery at the door step of our customers.
In early 90s company head office was moved to Lahore. Lahore is to Karachi, What New York is to Los Angeles, the two farthest ends of the country. This shift was made due to various reasons. Lahore is more convenient to access within the country. It also serves as the hub for all of the up country cargo movement. In recent years, Lahore has emerged as the industrial and IT hub of the country with various Industrial estates and IT parks being founded. Moreover it's only 3 hours drive away from both Faisalabad the textile hub of the country and Sialkot the world famous city for sporting goods, best known for producing soccers for FIFA world cups. Lastly due to ease in relationship between India and Pakistan. Lahore is rapidly emerging the gateway for import and export between India and Pakistan. Since Lahore is the closest point for cargo movement between the two countries.
The young company founder and Chairman commenced his career at Karachi, the financial and shipping hub of the country. During his tenure at a Greece based shipping line's local agency office. He earned immense experience and watched closely the shipping, stewarding, terminal operations and looked after the day to day tasks of the release of goods from port and customs. Back in early 80s, most companies were involved in customs brokerage, and shipping agency services only. The formal formation of the freight forwarding industry started to take place a few years later.
