TCS Express Worldwide to launch enhanced courier and air cargo services

Published February 22nd, 2005 - 01:12 GMT

TCS Express Worldwide LLC, a leading international air express organisation, has announced the pending Middle East launch of enhanced courier and air cargo services which include a unique web-enabled gift delivery service, set to benefit its new and existing customers in the UAE.

 

The company, already with major hubs in Dubai and London and a large infrastructure in Pakistan, also plans to open additional office branches in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries to support its rapid growth in the region.

 

The extensive plans by TCS will be showcased at the World Mail, Express and Air Cargo Expo, being jointly organised by UK company Triangle Management Services and Dubai-based Streamline Marketing and held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 1-2 March.  The company’s unique online gift delivery service called ‘sentiments express’ will take pride of place at the TCS display alongside ‘freight express’ and ‘Co Loaders’, two other services new to this region.

 

Speaking about the latest editions to the expanding TCS portfolio, Jamil Janjua, chief executive of TCS International Buisness said: “We’re thrilled to extend these additional services to this region, where we already offer a wide range of unique shipment choices.  Sentiments express, for example offers residential customers a fast and convenient way to send personalised gifts to family, friends or colleagues anywhere in the UAE, Pakistan, India, the UK or Canada.”

 

Customers can soon take advantage of this online catalogue-type service, by selecting gifts such as chocolates, perfumes and watches by logging on to www.tcs.com, by calling TCS directly, or by walking into the TCS branch in Karama, Dubai. 

 

TCS’s new freight express product, an economic and worldwide door-to-door airfreight service, is also set to shine at the conference-led exhibition thanks to the inclusion of the air cargo industry, which is being recognised for the first time at an expo of this kind.

 

Earmarked by TCS as the ideal event at which to also strengthen relationships and form new alliances, the World Mail, Express and Air Cargo Expo, Middle East & Africa, is regarded by the transportation industries as the premier regional forum at a global level: “Participating at the Expo will help us establish and reinforce our presence in the industry, ” said Janjua.

 

This presence has long been felt in the UAE region, not least through the successful link-up between TCS and the Pakistan Embassy with the launch in 2004 of TCS’s Passport Renewal Service for Pakistan residents in the UAE.  The service, developed with the support of the embassy to simplify the whole renewal process, demonstrates TCS’s commitment to the UAE community at large.

 

Another regional development on the horizon is the extension of the company’s air mail and cargo operations between Pakistan and Dubai.  This expansion, using two chartered TCS-owned AN12 aircrafts with a capacity of 18 tons, will make overnight deliveries of DOX and SPX packages possible all over Pakistan.  TCS will look to secure similar regional opportunities at the conference-led exhibition next month.

 

The expo is being held under the patronage of Sultan Saeed Al Mansoori, the UAE Minister of Communications and Chairman of host sponsor Emirates Post.  The Sultan will be a key speaker at the event alongside Abdulla Ibrahim Al Daboos, Director General of Emirates Post, who will give a Middle East perspective on the postal industry.

 

Nick Webb, managing director of Streamline Marketing said: “We’re looking forward to hosting a very successful conference and receiving a prestigious list of guests including the CEO’s of the Tunisian, Kenyan, Sierra Leone, Qatari and Lebanese postal services.”

 

The event has already attracted a diverse and international selection of the transportation industry’s top players including ARAMEX and DHL who will attend as premium sponsors and FedEx, TCS, Qatar Post and Dubai Cargo Village who will all act as support sponsors.
