Transworld invests Dh367m to expand shipping fleet

31-01-2013

Dubai: The Transworld Group, a Dubai-based logistics and shipping service provider, is investing close to $100 million (Dh367 million) in expanding its shipping fleet and launching new business verticals, its top official said.

Transworld Group won three prestigious awards at the Maritime and Logistics Awards 2014 held on 12th September 2014 at Palladium Hotel, Mumbai.

"We are investing $77 million in acquiring three bulk carrier ships, in addition to three container ships that we decided to buy last year, costing us an additional $20 million," Ramesh S. Ramakrishnan, chairman of the Transworld Group, told Gulf News in an interview

The $700-million annual turnover company has been growing at a year-on-year rate of 15-20 per cent over the last few years despite the downturn, cashing in on Dubai's central location as the region's biggest trans-shipment and re-export hub.

Shipping and logistics are two key contributors that fuel UAE's economy - helping major logistics and shipping operators, such as Transworld to grow. Shipping and logistics represent roughly about 14 per cent of the UAE's gross domestic product, according to the Supply Chain and Logistics Group (SCLG). Logistics revenues are expected to reach in Dh34.5 billion by 2014.

"The strategic location of Dubai's ports and the exceptional infrastructure that they offer has enabled Transworld and many others to gain a competitive advantage in the industry," Mohammad Sharaf, chief executive of DP World, said during a recent function held to mark the company's 35th anniversary.

"We are certain Transworld's expansions will further fuel their growth, ensuring they continue to grow as leading players in the industry."

The group, which operates through 15 subsidiary companies, has more than 1,700 employees on payroll, spread across nine locations in the GCC, 28 cities in India and one office in the United States. Balaji Shipping Lines, one of the company's subsidiaries, owns a fleet of 16,000 dry containers and 1,500 refrigerated containers that carry perishable and processed food items.

The company was established by Ramakrishnan's father in 1977. It operates a fleet of 27 ships, including 12 containerships and 15 feeder vessels

Ramakrishnan said his company had launched two new business verticals - Transworld Bulk Carriers and Tranworld Projects logistics management business - that will help the company grow at a higher rate amid challenging global economic conditions.

"Coming out of an economic downturn of the last four years, we have streamlined operations to make the company more agile and sustainable. Going forward, the launch of bulk carriers and project logistics management business will accelerate our growth," he said.

Transworld enters new verticals, expands existing operations

31-01-2013

Transworld, the leading shipping and logistics conglomerate, has announced expansion of its operations into new verticals, including the non-containerized segment. The new operations will be handled by Transworld Bulk Carriers FZCO and Transworld Projects, which are new entities within the group. Transworld's foray into the non-containerized segment is as owners and operators of bulk carriers and project logistics services providers, company officials pointed out.

Transworld, as a leading provider of diverse shipping and logistics services, has established its stronghold in the industry over 35 years through its companies Orient Express Lines, Balaji Shipping, Shreyas Shipping and Logistics, Shreyas Relay Systems and Albatross Shipping, among others. The companies have developed a strong footing for Transworld across the globe including UAE, India and USA.

Established in 1976, the Dubai-headquartered group has evolved into a global player in the shipping and logistics industry. The group has three ship owning companies, based in India and UAE, which collectively own a fleet of container vessels. It currently owns nine ships of which six are out of India and three out of UAE. It has offices in USA, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and in 28 Indian cities combined with strong network partner's world over.

Transworld yesterday unveiled its new branding created to symbolize the renewed vision and mission of the company, which is to focus on innovation, adapting new strategies and technologies and becoming a leader in the shipping and logistics industry.

The announcements were made during a celebratory event marking the group's completion of 35 years. The event, held at Transworld headquarters in Jebel Ali Free Zone Area (JAFZA), was attended by Mohammed Sharaf, Chief Executive Officer, DP World and senior officials of JAFZA, along with other dignitaries.

Ramesh S. Ramakrishnan, Chairman of Transworld, said the new identity falls in line with the company's renewed focus and expanded operations. The addition of three new container ships, along with the increase in capacity of the containers and increased focus on the reefer market within the region has led to a strong growth for Transworld, besides resulting in a significant increase in the inventory in the group company of Balaji Shipping, he pointed out

Mohammed Sharaf noted that Transworld has been a strong supporter of DP World. The strategic location of Dubai's ports and the exceptional infrastructure that they offer has enabled Transworld and many others to gain a competitive advantage in the industry, he pointed out.

Mohammed Sharaf, chief executive officer, DP World and senior officials of JAFZA, attended the event along with other dignitaries.
