Trans-Asia Shipping Lines Inc. was incorporated in March 1974 as Solar Shipping Lines Inc. Several months later, its corporate name was changed to Trans-Asia Shipping, with Julian G. Sy Sr. as president and chairman of the board of directors.
Since it began, the company has made significant contributions to the development of trade between Cebu and Cagayan as well as between Cebu and Butuan. It has also developed ports in the Visayas and in Mindanao, both of which are considered centers of economic activity. With its complement of Ro-Ro vessels, Trans-Asia Shipping is a leader in route development, cargo handling, and passage.
The company’s strategy is to build operations into market leaders in each of its routes since it has extensive knowledge of the Visayas-Mindanao area and a well-established relationship with customers. It balances cash-producing activities, investment in fleet modernization, and route development in the interests of sustained growth.
