Non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), is a person or company that organizes shipments for individuals or corporations to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to a market, customer, or final point of distribution.

TNS Group made a very prudent move to commence its own container services. This was at a time where major liner operators were setting up their own agency outfits, to augment their income. This move immediately proved to be strategic and was backed by the commencement of the NVOCC operation.

This segment grew in geometric proportions over the years, providing impetus to the Group’s Liner Agency activity as well. From a few port-to-port sectors, the NVOCC business was expanded to cover the whole of Asia.
