Singapore, 26 June, 2014 – CEVA Logistics, a leading global supply chain management company, was awarded the Best Green Logistics Operator award at the 28th Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards (AFSCA) held in Shanghai recently.
The annual awards organized by Cargonews Asia are designed to honor leading organizations for demonstrating leadership as well as consistency in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability.
Nominations for each category were voted for by readers of Asia’s leading shipping, supply chain and cargo transport publication, Cargonews Asia. The results are finalized by an independent auditor and CEVA was named as a finalist in the Best 3PL and Best Green Logistics Operator categories. The winners of the awards were announced at the AFSCA 2014.
Peter Dew, CEVA’s President of Asia Pacific commented: “I am very pleased that CEVA is named the Best Green Logistics Operator in Asia Pacific. This is a significant award by the industry that recognizes CEVA’s effort in providing greener supply chain solutions to our customers.

At CEVA, our commitment to sustainability helps us reduce waste and share the benefits with our customers.

CEVA, together with our customer Wartsila, a leading global supplier of marine and power plant solutions, were jointly named as winners of the Lean and Green Star Award last year for successfully reducing CO2 emissions by 60% at Wärtsilä’s warehousing operation in Kampen, the Netherlands.
