Agility has been named as the best logistics company at the Lloyds List Asia Awards at a glittering ceremony in Singapore.
The award judges included academics and industry leaders from across the Asia Pacific region and cited Agilitys broad range of logistics services spanning the supply chain, its independent status, and its environmental strategy as some of the deciding factors in selecting Agility as the winner.
We would like to thank the readers of Lloyds List who nominated Agility as a finalist and the judges for bestowing this honour on us. It is an award shared by all of our colleagues in the Asia Pacific region and around the world, said Wolfgang Hollermann, Agility, CEO, Asia Pacific.
Agility was voted as a finalist by readers of the international shipping and logistics publication, the oldest continuously published newspaper in the world.
Beating off strong competition from four other finalists, the award was presented to Olaf Tauschke, Agility Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific Region by Caroline Lim, PSA International, Global Head of Human Resources and Corporate Affairs.
We are honoured to receive this award in a very competitive category and it confirms that Agility is recognised as one of the worlds leading logistics service providers, said Tauschke at the awards ceremony.
