The President's Message

It is my distinct honor to serve as president of the Association. The Association was formed in the year of 1985 with the prime objective to encourage and promote entrepreneurship through the container transport industry and also to improve the quality of container transportation service, while being a major service provider in terms of the economy and development in our country.

The Association of Container Transporters has grown into a vibrant organization with a strong membership in representation of small, medium and large entrepreneurship within the country.

ACT provides valuable strength to its members by pursuing a regulatory framework that promotes the highest standards with an innovation to the industry. Through our work in various government and Port consultative bodies, we ensure that our members �voices are heard� and the practicalities of their businesses are respected by our regulators.

Ultimately, we belong to and derive strength from our members. ACT needs active participation of our membership to ensure that our messages are heard and acted upon.

President - ACT.
