Damco wins logistics sustainability award
Logistics provider Damco was honoured at the 8th Annual SCM Logistics Excellence awards today, winning the “Supply Chain Sustainability Award” for excellence in showcasing customer sustainability results.
This is the second year in a row that Damco has been awarded at the Logistics Excellence Awards, following last year’s ‘Supply Chain Best Partnership Award’.
This year’s award was given at the SCM Logistics World Conference, which is held this year at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore, which brings executives together from both the supply chain and logistics industry. The awards are decided by the delegates of the conference as well as supply chain practitioners around the world, who cast their votes in a global voting system.
