NLC At A Glance[edit]

In 1978, a massive congestion at Karachi Port brought Pakistan’s logistics cycle to a grinding halt resulting in severe shortage of essential commodities in various parts of the Country. The crisis warranted urgent measures to restore normalcy. The Government decided to establish a dedicated Organization to manage the crisis at hand and avert logistics emergencies in future. The compelling circumstances thus gave birth to an Organization that was destined to play a major role in the National development.

The Government named the Organization as National Logistics Cell (NLC). Since its inception, NLC has made remarkable progress and has been evolved into Pakistan’s premier logistics and construction Organization performing diversified roles and significantly contributing to the growth of National economy. A cursory analysis of the development trajectory and the steady expansion of NLC in terms of human and material resources is suffice to bear out the high standards and professionalism maintained by the Organization. Initially raised to handle logistics crisis, NLC as of today, has grown into Pakistan’s one of the largest and self-sustaining public sector enterprise that carries out overarching and co-related tasks ranging from construction of mega structures in shortest possible time, to providing pragmatic logistics solutions, management of a chain of well-equipped dry ports & border terminals, collection of toll revenue on National and provincial highways alongside highest possible efficiency and skill development of the Country’s rich human resource capital.
