Imagine a world where nothing was delivered or transported between places.

Not only is the idea of logistics vitally important to the distribution industry, it makes distribution prompt and efficient. In this very competitive market, it is useful that companies no longer have to wait for what they need.

Since its inception in 1990, AK Transport Company has emerged as the best in class transport solution with a fleet of 310 vehicles. Enjoying a reputation of reliability coupled with state of the art IT based tracking systems, competitive pricing and large network, AK Transport has won the confidence of top businesses, corporate entities and MNCs operating in Pakistan.

AK Transport Company is the first Pakistani company to go global.

The company hosted an event at the Expo Centre, Lahore on 29th of November, 2019 wherein 13 companies were launched.

His Excellency Mr. Nabil Touati, the ambassador of the Netherlands was the chief guest at the event.

The main highlight of the event was that AK Transport became the first ever company in the world to become operational on the famous CPEC route.

On the CPEC route, 7857 containers a day would be dispatched by China for Europe and Africa. This will help reduce shipment time by 10 days and 3500 nautical miles of sea travel.

Senior representatives from different leading fields attended the event; including all major multinationals, senior management from financial institutions working in Pakistan, and reps from new industries developing on CPEC.

Representatives from provincial and federal governments, the air force and army were also present to witness the launch of the first ever simulator products made in Pakistan by AK Aviation.

The ambassador himself started the first simulator made by Ocean Simulators, a subsidiary of AK Aviation.

A Pakistani company, which was not only Pakistan’s first but it is the first company to produce simulators in the sub-continent and the Middle East combined.

The CEO of TRC simulators, Mr. Hubert Roth signed a joint venture with Mr. Hassan Ahmed, CEO of Ocean Simulators, to seize their production to Pakistan.
