Continental Group began its journey in 1977 with “Continental Progressive Industries Ltd.” However, the major portfolio of Continental Group, “Continental Courier Services LTD, inaugurated in 1983. Late M. Ruhul Amin Chisty, former chairman of Continental Group, has pioneered the concept of courier services in Bangladesh, starting with only 14 sales and distribution stations and a workforce of 45 employees (at the time of inception).
Continental Courier Services has built its market by providing door-to-door document and parcel delivery within the shortest possible time, a service that was not available in Bangladesh at the time of its inception. As a result, the market grew rapidly and others followed the footsteps of Continental, but Continental remains at the top in terms of market share and assures the best quality of service in the country, till date. Rapidly expanding its network all over Bangladesh, Continental is still the largest network in the country.
