At the 26th Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards (AFSCAs) in early June 2012, DB Schenker was honored with two prestigious logistics industry awards.
During the ceremony in Shanghai, DB Schenker was presented with the awards for “Best Road Haulier – Asia” and “Best Green Service Provider – Logistics Operator”.
“We are very humbled by this recognition from the customers and industry. The two awards together are a strong testimony to the Group's 2020 strategic objectives and recognize our efforts in continually developing the critically important distribution and last-mile delivery capability, coupled with our committed environmental and sustainability focus in the Asia Pacific region, all for our customers,” said Jochen Thewes, CEO of Schenker (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd.
This is the second year in a row that DB Schenker has won the Road Haulier award, which is based on criteria such as, expertise, service standards and innovation.
It is also the second time that DB Schenker received the Best Green Logistics Provider award since 2009. The award recognizes, among others, consistent environmental standards and investments in green technologies and initiatives.
The AFSCAs are organized by Cargonews Asia and signify service providers for their consistency in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability. Nominations for the AFSCAs are polled from more than 11,000 readers of Cargonews Asia, which makes the AFSCAs also known as “the Shippers Choice Awards”. They have been Asia’s leading awards of the cargo transport industry for the last 26 years.
