In addition to project logistics management, the Group's core activities encompass ship chartering, aviation logistics, logistics consultancy and transport engineering. TGP also offers a wide spectrum of services in global freight forwarding, supply chain management and integrated logistics as well as value-added services such as biosecurity, procurement, customs brokerage and insurance.
Trans Global Projects was founded in January 1988 as a subsidiary of the Trans Global Group, one of the UK's largest independent multimodal transport organisations. One year after its founding, TGP embarked on a global expansion programme, opening its first overseas office in Antwerp in 1989. In 1999, the company won its first “mega project” on the giant Karachaganak Gas Condensate project in Western Kazakhstan. The $220 million USD contract ran for five years, and during that time, TGP was responsible for the movement of 1.6 million tonnes of cargo as well as managing all logistics-related services on the project.
TGP took the next step in its development in 2007, when Breezeline International Group Ltd, a co-investor owned by members of the senior management team, acquired full ownership of the TGP group of companies.
In December 2013, TGP was ranked the 64th fastest growing private company in a Fast Track 100 report. The company was also ranked the second largest in the Fast Track 100 league table in terms of its annual turnover.
In 2015, TGP continued its substantial growth, acquiring the Swiss logistics specialist Natco AG. Two years later, TGP acquired Germany's Natco GmbH and became a majority stakeholder in the Brazilian transport company NPT Brasil Projetos & Transportes Internacionais LTDA (NPT), further expanding the company's global reach.
In 2018, TGP was awarded the contract for project logistics management for a shipment of equipment and construction materials to the British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) Rothera Research Station at Rothera Point by BAM, a global construction and engineering company. The equipment and materials were to be used to build a new wharf to house the UK's new state-of-the-art polar research vessel RSS Sir David Attenborough. TGP completed the shipment's discharge in January 2019, and as a result of the Antarctica project's success, the company is currently shortlisted for "Excellence in Engineering" at the 2019 Heavy Lift Awards.[dead link]
Today, TGP operates all over the world and is represented by more than 30 offices across six continents.
