Hamburg/ Singapore, July 6, 2017. Hamburg Süd has received the Best Green Shipping Line award for the fifth time in six years. In Singapore on June 29 the award was presented during the Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards 2017, which are among the most prestigious accolades in the Asian transport and logistics sector.
A specialist jury had shortlisted four shipping lines as finalists in the category. From among this pool, the readers of the Hong Kong-based shipping and logistics journal Asia Cargo News selected the winner. The finalists were rated among other things on their compliance with national and global environmental regulations and standards, investments in new environmental technologies and measures to minimize fuel consumption.
“Sustainability is an indispensable part of Hamburg Süd’s corporate philosophy. We are therefore delighted that our continued commitment in this area is being recognized for the fifth time and we would like to thank all customers who again voted for us this year,” says Stefan Kirschner, Regional Manager Region Asia-Pacific at Hamburg Süd.
The award was accepted on behalf of Hamburg Süd by Silke Sehgal, Area Manager South East Asia at Hamburg Süd, before an audience of several hundred high-ranking representatives of the Asian and international shipping, transport and logistics sector in the Marina Bay Cruise Centre in Singpore.
Last year, Hamburg Süd was honored at the AFLAS Awards in the category Best Shipping Line Asia – Europe.
