HTL has been commended for various achievements during the last 42 years of operations. We have pioneered and innovated many products in the freight forwarding industry including conceptualizing ‘Hanging Garments’ for Containers, sea/air & air/sea products which were designed to cater to the Apparel & Textile industry for which HTL specializes till date.
Apart from above products, HTL was the pioneering International freight forwarder to open own offices in Pakistan and Bangladesh and was only the 2nd to enter the Indian market. Currently we are the oldest international freight forwarder in operation in India with over 26 years of service.
