Pakistan is situated in the western part of the Indian subcontinent, with Afghanistan and Iran on the west, India on the east, and the Arabian Sea on the south. The name Pakistan is derived from the Urdu words Pak (meaning pure) and stan (meaning country). The northern and western highlands of Pakistan contain the towering Karakoram and Pamir mountain ranges, which include some of the world's highest peaks: K2 (28,250 ft; 8,611 m) and Nanga Parbat (26,660 ft; 8,126 m). The Baluchistan Plateau lies to the west, and the Thar Desert and an expanse of alluvial plains, the Punjab and Sind, lie to the east. The 1,000-mile-long (1,609 km) Indus River and its tributaries flow through the country from the Kashmir region to the Arabian Sea.
Pakistan was one of the two original successor states to British India, which was partitioned along religious lines in 1947. For almost 25 years following independence, it consisted of two separate regions, East and West Pakistan, but now it is made up only of the western sector. Both a nuclear power and important cricketing nation, Pakistan has existed as an independent country for little more than 60 years, but has been playing an important role in the historical epic of the Indian subcontinent for millennia. It has been the birthplace of the world’s first urban civilisation, home to one of the great flowerings of Buddhism, and cornerstone of the Mughal empire.

Sea Freight
Pakistan shares a 1,200 km coastline with the Arabian Sea - a mild sea which joins the strategic oil line of Persian Gulf with the Indian Ocean. On it lies Karachi Port, which has been serving this part of the Indian subcontinent and later Pakistan since its creation in 1947. Due to the growing needs of the country and increased freight volumes, smaller coastal ports were changed into major cargo handling ports. Beside Karachi - Pasni, Jiwani, Gadani, Ormara and Gwadar are other ports which have been developed into world class shipping handling centres. Turk Transport has strong and healthy relations with many shipping lines, built up over many years, handling large volumes of freight, serving Pakistan.
