History & Background
Gradually the company expanded its scope of services around Iran, recruiting more employees and opening branches not only in major populated locations but also in smaller remote cities and towns. As a result, the courier services broke off as a subsidiary to what was to become Tipax International Holding. In addition, since 1991 six other subsidiary companies have been launched, expanding the scope of the company’s work to many different areas and businesses. Now with more than half a century of experience, Tipax is the oldest and one of the biggest companies in its field, currently having more than 3000 employees, 35 offices in Tehran and 215 branches in more than 200 cities all around the country. The company is known as one of the most flexible and dependable logistics and holding experts in Iran, and prudently invests to expand its integrated global network and service portfolio even further to become one of the top international companies in the middle East. Recognized as the first leading privately-held logistics and courier service in Iran, Tipax started out from the basics. The origins of the company go back to 1960 when Dr. Mohammad Ali Fakher established a small company to ship parcels between five cities in Iran. He named the company after an Achaemenid commander called “Tipax” who founded the first official delivery services in the world during the Persian Empire circa 550 BC.
