A Punjabi-powered Malaysian logistics firm that played a role in the construction of the Petronas Twin Towers has been named company of the year by Frost & Sullivan.
The global business consulting firm awarded Trans International Logistiks Sdn Bhd (TIL) the Malaysia Project Logistics Service Provider of the Year 2019 award, a badge for a true industry leader in the country.
Described as an exemplary project logistics company, the 12-year old company has been handling projects of every dimension, including heavy and niche industries.
“These companies have a keen eye on the future and drive innovation that meets upcoming needs before they become commonly visible, often being first to market with new solutions,” Frost & Sullivan chairman David Frigstad said in a note recognising the award.
Establishment in April 2007, TIL is involved in the business of total global project logistics management and indirect tax exemption consultancy. It undertakes projects from various industries such as manufacturing, construction & development, infrastructure, oil, gas & petrochemical, power plants, and telecommunication.
At this moment, it is involved in the construction of iconic KL 118 Tower which will be the tallest building in Malaysia when completed.
“We go beyond the norm in logistics. We combine services like taxation, exemptions, licenses. We also go into capex investment,” TIL managing director Kuldip Singh Seine told Asia Samachar.
He added: “We are a combination of all-logistics. When we say w are a one-stop shop, we actually provide all solutions for the logistics from origin to delivery site. We do the complete processes.”
TIL has gradually expanded its services across Malaysia and globally. With two direct branches and agent branches all over the country, the company provides end-to-end project logistics solutions and has been engaged by numerous companies for major projects in Malaysia and internationally.
In the note, Frost & Sullivan noted that TIL’s vast experience in the industry has placed the company among the main project logistics service providers in Malaysia.
Since establishment, it said the company has created an extensive history in providing high-quality support project logistics services and consultant services for manufacturing, power, oil and gas, and petroleum companies.
TIL has handled successfully numerous projects by putting to work its connection between the global network and local expertise. One such project was the co-generation system from China and Germany to Shah Alam, Malaysia, for food processing plant with total revenue tons handled at 2,000 tons.
It also managed the transformer movement from China to a cement plant in Rawang and KLIA2 passenger boarding bridges from China to international airport project site. The latter involved 80 units whose weight ramped up to 25,000 revenue tons.
What does the award mean? Frost & Sullivan said the Company of the Year Award recipient must be recognised as a leader in their own industry as well as the non-industry peers. It requires a company to demonstrate excellence in growth, innovation, and leadership.
“TIL has consistently gone the extra mile in providing industry-leading expertise and services for the smooth execution of its heavy-lift project logistics,” it said.
