We announce with great pleasure that yesterday evening, at a packed ceremony at the Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai, AAL won the Asia Freight & Supply Chain (AFLAS) 2016 Award for ‘Best Shipping Line – Project Cargo’! This is a record third consecutive time that AAL has won this award.
Beating out other shortlisted carriers, that included Intermarine and Wallenius Whilhelmsen, the award was presented to our Deputy Managing Director, Wolfgang Harms. He attended the event on AAL’s behalf with the General Manager of our China Office, Zhao Jin Hai.
Our Managing Director, Kyriacos Panayides said of this lates achievement,‘It was extremely hard to make it onto the nominated shortlist for this award back in 2014, when we first won it. It was then twice as hard to hold onto the award for a second year. But, to be nominated for a third consecutive year and to win again is an incredible achievement. We thank our peers within the global shipping industry who voted for us and for their continued support and faith.
‘This achievement is dedicated to all our AAL personnel who – despite the pressure from the recessive global markets – keep delivering a superior service at every level of our organisation and constantly strive to deliver to our customer first-class global transport solutions.
He concluded, ‘This award also reflects the unique expertise and invaluable contribution of CSM and our fleet’s talented officers and crew, who ensure safe and efficient sailings and cargo operations for AAL across the globe, 24/7.’
