It is with great pleasure that we present to you the Transworld Group. Founded in 1977 by late R. Sivaswamy, his guiding principles of quality, service and commitment to excellence have served the group well and helped us build a solid platform. We now look forward to the future with confidence to be an enabler of global trade and strive to achieve our higher purpose of delivering prosperity to humanity.

Headquartered in the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai, with its global offices combined with strong network partners world over, today, Transworld offers a one-stop solution with over four decades of expertise to all our customers for their shipping and logistics needs.

We are also looking at enhancing our global footprint in the Americas, Europe, Africa and Far East. So, be it through our asset-owning or asset-light businesses, we are focused on serving our customers better. Our focus is on becoming a complete solutions provider for our customers.
As part of the goal that we have set ourselves at the Transworld Group, we have taken a pledge to work towards being a carbon-neutral organisation by 2043. To reach that aim, over the next few years, we will start with focusing on reducing our greenhouse gas emissions across all businesses and locations. Additionally, we are committed to strengthening data security and building a more diverse and inclusive workspace. However, we plan to meet these goals in a more measurable manner.
Besides the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), we are also following the United Nations Global Compact initiative, and applied for certification from CDP, a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for companies, investors, cities, etc.
It is a continuous learning curve as ESG is always a work in progress and value creation has always been an integral part of the Transworld Group DNA. We believe that businesses can thrive only if the society and environment prosper alongside. And as far as Transworld is concerned, social responsibility and connecting with people have always been the philosophy of our organisation, where our main aim is to create and deliver prosperity to our employees and to every stakeholder associated with our group. This is how we have been able to maintain and nurture all our relationships over the years.
