DB Schenker awarded as Best Logistics Service Provider in Rail at AFLAS
May 28, 2018: DB Schenker has been awarded for the third consecutive year as the Best Logistics Service Provider – Rail, at the Asian Freight, Logistics & Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards ceremony held in Shanghai on May 15, 2018.
The award recognizes expertise, innovation, technology application, service standards leadership and bespoke solutions for shippers. Having pioneered Rail Freight services a decade ago with its first Asia – Europe rail link from China to Germany in 2008, DB Schenker has continually developed an extensive portfolio of market-leading rail solutions in Asia Pacific, offering full container load (FCL), less-than-container-load (LCL), blocktrains, multi-customer, reefer services and so on, to customers in the automotive, electronics, industrial/chemicals, consumer goods and other sectors.
Apart from the highly-established China-Euro rail services, rail solutions are also offered in Australia (pan Australia rail solutions network linking Sydney to Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin and Perth), Indonesia (trans-java rail solutions in Indonesia linking Jakarta with Surabaya and Semarang) and recently also developed rail solutions in Vietnam and India as well. This hat-trick of awards for rail is complemented with past AFLAS Awards won for Best Logistics Service Provider in sea freight, air freight, and best road haulier.
“We are indeed thankful and humbled by the recognition from the industry and customers past and present. This inspires us continuously to strive and offer our customers an unmatched suite of award-winning solutions for their supply chains. Additionally, DB Schenker’s heritage and pedigree in rail is testimony to our unique proposition in inter-modal supply chain solutions for businesses in Asia,” said Peter Hult, executive VP for contract logistics/supply chain management in Asia Pacific, DB Schenker.
