Hong Kong, June 17th, 2013 - Geodis Wilson, one of the world’s leading freight management companies, has been awarded the Best Logistics Service Provider – Project Cargo, at the 27th Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards (AFSCA). SK Yeung, Managing Director Geodis Wilson Greater China, and Bill Guo, Sales Director for Hong Kong & China, received the Award during the ceremony in Beijing.
“We are thrilled that Geodis Wilson has been recognized by the industry, and we much appreciated the support our customers and industry colleagues gave by voting for us" commented SK Yeung, Managing Director, Central Eastern Northern China. "This is a huge honour for Geodis and we extend our congratulations to all colleagues and staff worldwide in winning this prestigious award.”
The key criteria for award entrants for this particular category were to provide bespoke solutions for cargoes outside the normal product range; effective and easy to us IT systems, including tracking of cargo, backed by efficient and professional customer services systems; and the ability to “think outside the box”.
Geodis Wilson design in advance all project operations and have a dedicated team on-site to ensure that each project runs smoothly. One such project operation took place earlier this year when 3 sets of blades needed to be delivered from inner Mongolia to Hebei province. At the point when the cargo was ready, heavy snow hampered access to the wind farm park. Geodis proposed some minor civil engineering works and obtained a more appropriate trailer, therefore avoiding costly repairs to the road and delaying the operation further.
Geodis Wilson beat an impressive line-up of awards entrants and received the majority of the votes from customers and industry related experts.
