SHANGHAI – Leading companies in the cargo, logistics and supply chain sectors took home 48 different awards at the 2018 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards at the Wanda Reign on the Bund Hotel in Shanghai on May 15.


The awards, hosted and organized annually by Asia Cargo News, recognize leading service providers including air and shipping lines; air and seaports; and logistics, 3PLs and other associated industry professionals. The nomination and voting process allowed the more than 10,000 readers of Asia Cargo News and e-news subscribers to first determine the leading companies in the market, and then determine the winners, making the results the opinion of service users rather than a panel of judges.


The nomination criteria were laid down by Asia Cargo News, and following a technical evaluation, the top eight firms in each category appeared on the final ballot. The top three firms in each category made up the final shortlist, with the winners collecting their awards from guest presenters from some of the biggest players in the Asian freight and logistics industry.


“Thousands of shippers and industry experts have voted, making the results a true reflection of industry expertise,” said Asia Cargo News publisher Darren Barton. “The response was overwhelming.”


“There is an impressive amount of high-quality work being done in the region, and we’re pleased to be able honour the region’s leading service providers,” said Asia Cargo News managing editor Gregory Glass. “Asia is an exciting place to be in the freight, logistics and supply chain business.”


Written by leading transport and cargo industry journalists, Asia Cargo News is a vital source of intelligence for cargo, logistics and supply chain companies located in and doing business in Asia. The newspaper includes a range of in-depth features, news and analysis designed to meet the information needs of industry decision-makers.


The 2019 AFLAS Awards will be held in Hong Kong.
