Toll Global Forwarding, part of Toll Group, continues to expand, growing its global footprint through a franchise program.
The first phase of the growth program includes six countries - Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon and Qatar - and brings its total number of owned and affiliated operations across the world to more than 150.
The franchise appointments in Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Qatar will enhance Toll Global Forwarding's presence in the Middle East and North Africa and support existing operations in Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
Toll Global Forwarding CEO Paul Coutts said Toll has chosen to partner with established organisations in their markets to enable Toll to better service its customers.
"Establishing a franchise relationship with these key service providers means that we now have an even stronger global network to serve our customers," Mr Coutts said.
"Many have been our partners through an agency relationship for several years."
