Their first Boeing 727 freighter service commenced in 2000 for the Kuala Lumpur/Penang-Bangkok-Hong Kong courier sector. It was an extended operation for their existing client, DHL International Limited. The continued use of Transmile Air Freight business by international integrators is a resounding endorsement of the quality of service that they offer.

News

In May 2007, Transmile shares saw a massive selldown following the company's announcement on 7 May 2007 concerning the reliability of its unaudited consolidated results for the financial year ended 31 December 2006, resulting from the Company's auditors not able to satisfy themselves on the fairness or validity of certain transactions. Consequently, the company has commissioned a special audit relating to the matter. The Securities Commission has charged three former executives of Transmile Bhd, including its founder, with giving misleading financial statements.

The three are ex-chief financial officer Lo Chok Ping, ex-executive director Khiudin Mohd and founder Gan Boon Aun, who resigned as chief executive officer in June.

He quit after Transmile had lodged a police report over false statements and documents on revenue, property, plant and equipment and payments to third parties as reported by Moores Rowland Risk Management Sdn Bhd in a special audit.
