Since it’s dawn in 2001, Three Lines Shipping L.L.C (TLS) has been on a constant growth path by continuous learning and improvising how they approach their work. As recipient of the Arabian Excellence Awards 2017 from the UAE, we invited Rafeeq.K. K to profile the work of this transport company.

Established in 2001 and headquartered in Dubai, Three Lines Shipping L.L.C (TLS) has diversified from being local transport company to an international freight forwarding company, specialising in oil and gas as well as industrial projects. At TLS, we provide complete tailor made solutions for each customer. Every team member here, however long they have worked for us, is customer focused in their work and believes in the company’s strengths to deliver the impossible.

Our vision is to be the best project partners across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region by 2020, something that every member of the team is committed to. This has certainly put us in a leading position, with offices across the GCC, enabling us to cater for the most complex needs in the freight forwarding industry.

The heavy lift arm of TLS, which is TGT transport, has a sizeable fleet of heavy lifting equipment such as multi axle lines, hydraulic low beds, drop decks so we have been successful in moving both odd and heavy packages across the GCC region.

Receiving the Arabian Excellence Awards 2017 from the UAE, is one of the best recognitions we have had for our efforts in the freight forwarding industry. Our team is more than pleased to have received this award, indeed all of us feel truly honoured. This award will give us all a boost and it will ensure the company’s further success and growth as we move into an exciting future.

The company has constantly been receiving awards for our excellent service to the clients we serve, but this most recent award is nothing but a feather in our cap. It will give us more exposure and it will help us scale up our volumes of work, as it will provide a greater level of confidence to our existing and new customers to be on board.

The GCC region has been a steady growth market for our industry, which is characterised by the number of MNC freight forwarders in the region. I believe that there is tremendous potential for further growth in the region and we at TLS want to capitalise every bit of our work towards the common goal of being nothing but a world class MNC freight forwarding company.

We also believe in giving back to the environment, because we are working towards achieving a paperless office by 2020, by smartly investing in systems and technology. TLS has earmarked a strategy to infuse technology into its management, thus a transfusion process in this vein has been earmarked, to ensure that we become a fully tech enabled company by 2019.

TLS also has its presence in the new age business – as we cater to both the food and e-commerce industries – with our fast-growing delivery services company TAWSEELAH. In closing, I would like to say that TLS is very well led by industry experts – with over 100 years of combined experience – so we are here to stay and grow.
