Introduction to Tungya
Five decades ago during the outset of Taiwan economic take-off era, Tungya started the island's first special cargo hauling business, moving heavy and odd shaped machinery and equipments to coincide with industry's demand for this type of service.
Two of our initial assignments were to haul 50 ton fertilizer boilers for Taiwan Fertilizer Company, and bulky high-tension power generating and delivering equipments for Tai-Power. These were difficult tasks considering the absence of modern day facilities and infrastructure. However, our commitment to Taiwan's goals for major construction and economic development earned us a reputation early on as the leader in the specialized transportation field.
With the inception of containerization in Taiwan, we were proud to be chosen to haul the very first container ever to arrive in 1967. Shorty after, we expanded and became the first container transportation company in Taiwan. Then in 1969, we built the first container terminal in the WuTu area serving the port of Keelung. As we continued to develop, container transportation and terminal services became the back-bone of our business.
With the gradual change to Taiwan’s industry structure during the middle of 1980s, manufacturers and factories began to move their operations overseas for cost-cutting purposes. As a result, China and other Southeast Asian countries have become the world’s largest manufacturers. In order to increase international competitiveness, Tungya also expanded its services overseas.
Since 1992, Tungya has expanded its service network to Surabaya, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Jakarta, Shenzhen, Xiamen, and Qingdao. In order to satisfy customers’ needs and the ever-changing business environment, we strive to provide the best integrated supply chain logistics service worldwide that includes container terminal, warehousing, and container transportation.
Meanwhile in Taiwan, we expanded our terminal operations to include the northern, mid, and southern Taiwan to better serve our customers geographically. At the same time, we added container leasing & repair, ocean consolidation, airfreight and forwarding services to our business portfolio. These as a whole allow us to provide the most comprehensive and integrated total-solution services to our customers.
Today, in addition to sufficient amount of handling equipments and trucking fleet allocated in China and Southeast Asia, Tungya owns more than 330,000 square meters (3.5 million square feet) of land in Taiwan, consists of seven terminals, depot, and repair centers, all located island wide to serve our customers. In addition, we have four container terminals and five warehouses in China, along with three terminals in Indonesia providing everyday operation. In the future, Tungya hopes to continue its growth in both service scope and scale.
As we did then and continue to do today, Tungya strives to improve its service and make capital investments in facility expansion and tractors and equipment replacements. In addition, we aim to hire and maintain the most competent and experienced management team. All of our operations are supported by strong IT systems to increase efficiency and enhance service quality. We value our customers and understand the importance of customer satisfaction, and we will make the necessary changes and improvements to achieve that goal.
We have enjoyed five decades of continuous growth by serving our customers faithfully with highly efficient operation and services. We are proud to be the front-runner of this industry and will continue to maintain superior standard in service quality. Finally, we will utilize our experience and know-how to propel ourselves into the ever-changing and internationalized era.
