Hong Kong-listed Kerry Logistics was proclaimed best 3PL at the Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards in Shanghai last night.
But the accolades didn’t stop there. The leading logistics service provider was also named the Best Green Logistics Operator, a further testament to its industry leading position in the region. AFLAS winners are selected based exclusively on customer satisfaction and votes.
“We are thrilled and humbled to be winning the Best 3PL award for the very first time and see this as a milestone achievement for Kerry Logistics. It is also an encouraging affirmation to the continued efforts and determination of our team. We are grateful to our colleagues for delivering service excellence to a diverse portfolio of customers around the world who made this watershed feat a reality,” William Ma, group managing director of Kerry Logistics exclaimed.
Since the inception of AFLAS in 1986, Kerry Logistics is the first homegrown Hong Kong business to be crowned the top place in the Best 3PL category.
William Ma continued, “It is the concerted effort of our dynamic team of colleagues in 550 offices across 40 countries that made this journey of continuous improvement much more momentous and valuable. 2015 has been a year full of challenges but we were able to ride the waves and achieved satisfactory results. This year’s double win is a defining moment providing extra encouragement for our ongoing success. To be formally recognized by our peers also provides greater motivation for us to strive forward.”
Kerry Logistics’ win comes just two weeks after the company acquired a 51% stake in US freight forwarder APEX Maritime for US$87.9m.
