Damco, a leading logistics and freight forwarding company, was conferred the Outstanding Partner in Supply Chain Excellence Award during the SCM Logistics Excellence Awards ceremony in Singapore on 6 October.

The award recognizes Damco for its ability and significant contribution in offering end-to-end supply chain solutions which help customers improve their business performance.

Mr. Rolf Habben-Jansen, global Chief Executive Officer for Damco says, “We are very pleased to receive this esteemed award. It reaffirms our dedication to service delivery and innovation to help our customers overcome their supply chain challenges. Our Asian team has been very successful in engaging and working with our customers to address their supply chain needs - whether it is increasing supply chain visibility, reengineering supply chain models to reduce costs and cope with sudden demand, or operating an export distribution centre to increase efficiency.”

Damco was also honored for its SupplyChain HealthCheckTM tool which identifies improvement opportunities with significant potential savings in customers’ supply chains. This serves to highlight the successful collaboration between Damco and its customers to meet changing challenges in the current volatile business landscape.

An independent panel of judges, which included prominent international figures from consultancy and academic institutions, selected Damco and four other winning companies from more than 20 nominees to win the award.
