INDUSTRY GROWTH CYCLE
Presently, the courier service industry is at its growing stage because there are
many other dimensions besides delivery of documents and parcel, for a firm providing
courier services. As, TCS has grown its business by developing a progressive master
enterprise, Tranzum, o f f e r i n g s e r v i c e s i n d i v e r s i f i e d i n d u s t r i e s i n c l u d i n g

EXTERNAL FORCES IMPACT:
As Pakistan is an emerging nation with a growth rate of 11.5% it
h a s b e c o m e a n attractive destination for the foreign companies to invest in.
This trend is favorable for the courier industry because new companies will start
of their operations in Pakistan in nearly every sector, form banks and automobiles to
telecommunication etc, they will seek courier services companies to carry out their
processes because they want their bills and other important documents to be
delivered on time with a proof of deliveries. Besides, GPD is also increasing with its
direct impact on per capita income. Per capita income in turn affects the disposable
income. With the increase of disposable income the buying power of the
consumer also increases, making them switch from the Pakistan postal services to
courier service industry.
POLITICAL & LEGAL ASPECT:
Stability of the govern ment holds a very important position in the
c o u r i e r i n d u s t r y because when the new government takes the charge, they develop
new legal policies that affect nearly all business environments. In the present government,
the monetary system a n d i t s a c t i v i t i e s a r e f u l l y f u n c t i o n a l . A c c e s s t o l o a n s

common customer and is favorable for the courier service industry.
Celebrating mother’s day and Valentine’s Day in Pakistan is clear evidence, showing the
impact of highly influential American and European culture. Besides this, media
and foreign channels are changing the life styles of the people, making it faster
day by day. Now customers demand quicker, faster and reliable services. With
these changes in our culture, the courier service industry has to keep pace with
the new trends by offering customers the required needs.
Technology is changing on daily basis offering businesses new dimension to carry
out their operation. Similarly, in the courier service industry, technology is

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY:
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a fundamental part of businesses today.

this list are organizations like SIUT, Sada Welfare Trust, SOS Village, The Citizens

TCS should try expanding and grabbing more international market share to get
foreign exchange into the country which has started to harvest its land for business
cultivation. Maintaining focus on its core services and expanding itself into related
chain of services like introducing domestic and international airline services will give
TCS new streams of profits.TCS must take advantage of strategic location of Pakistan
and establish its own terminal and ports to handle specialized container packed sea
TCS should also start its own international cargo delivery towards end destinations

I don’t see it challenging other online shops for market share but it definitely has potential
to grow and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it evolve into more of a gift shop backed by
authentic products and on time delivery in future even if its performance as a pure emarketplace isn’t stellar.
Just to conclude here, we know from people close to TCS that they are working on payment
processing gateway as well. This is in addition to mobile banking solution that TCS is working
