Transways – The Logical Choice

In 1983 a new freight company launched onto the Australian market. Its name was Transways - a small Australian owned and operated company with a very definite strategic plan, to become the largest, most successful player in a future key geographical freight market. A market that would not only become paramount to the future success of Australia, but one which would rapidly expand to become a central hub in world wide trade.

Whilst most companies were concentrating on key European freight ports, Transways were steadily building, through acquisition and amalgamation, a dynamic presence throughout the world, with special emphasis on export and import to and from China and the Asian region.

Twenty years later that plan has become a reality and its rationale a fact. Asia, not Europe, now hosts the world's four busiest ports of Hong Kong, Shanghai (China), Busan (Korea) and Yantian (Shenzhen) also in China. Trade to and from this region has grown at a dramatic pace with ports such as Shanghai experiencing an incredible 25% annual increase in freight volume.

Transways Logistics International has matched this dynamic regional growth by creating a successful network of company owned offices and affiliated networks throughout the whole of Asia. From the head office in Sydney with its regional offices throughout Australia, to the 11 company owned offices in just China, as well as Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam – Transways Logistics International has become Australia's link to this increasingly important South East Asian region. To see the complete network of Transways offices please see our International Agents and offices page.

But as many people have experienced, doing business with Asian countries often requires localised knowledge and expertise and this is where Transways Logistics International excel. Growing through acquisition has enabled the group to create a unique network of offices managed and staffed by dedicated local people who know how to get the very best results for their customers, not once, but every time!

Aided by the very latest sophisticated "customer direct” 24 hour computer tracking facilities that allow instant freight status reports, coupled with a complete one-stop freight service, including international documentation, custom broking, tariff consulting and valuation, pick and pack logistics, under bond and free store warehousing and distribution.

It's no wonder that many customers are turning to Transways Logistics International as their logical choice.
