DB Schenker Awarded Sea Freight Partner of the Year
(Singapore, 18 November, 2016) DB Schenker has been awarded Sea Freight Partner of the Year at the Supply Chain Asia Awards 2016 held in Singapore.
The annual Awards recognizes DB Schenker for making a difference both globally and regionally, in terms of business and economic development in the Sea Freight industry over the course of the year. Finalists for the awards were chosen by an audited ballot of the 8,700 readers for Supply Chain Asia magazine and via the Supply Chain Asia web portal, with the winner selected also based on a judging panel of 10 experts.
Stephane Gautrais, Senior Vice President of Ocean Freight for DB Schenker in Asia Pacific said, “We are honored and humbled by this recognition from among our peers and customers in the market.”
“This award is certainly more significant this year, especially in the wake of the upheavals in the Ocean Freight sector recently. As the industry disrupts and consolidates, our unrelenting focus on helping our customers weather whatever storms, to ensure continuity and value-add in their supply chains, is what my colleagues and I passionately pursue. This award is a testimony of the collective effort from our colleagues, and also the support from our customers, with whom we share this award with.” Gautrais added.
This is the second time DB Schenker has won the Sea Freight Award, having also been a previous winner of the Air Freight award and most recently last year as the Global 3PL award winner at the Supply Chain Asia Awards.
DB Schenker in Asia Pacific has an extensive history of over 50 years in the region, with an operational footprint of more than 13,000 employees in over 400 locations, and serving a diverse range of industries such as automotive, aerospace, electronics, fashion, healthcare, high-tech, industrial, retail / consumer goods, as well as trade fair forwarding, special transports and services for major sporting events.
