SINGAPORE Agility, a leading global logistics provider, announced today it won “Global 3PL of the Year” for the third year in-a-row at the prestigious Supply Chain Asia Logistics Awards in Singapore


More than 300 leading logistics and supply chain professionals gathered for the region’s premier event at Marina Bay Sands. In the highly competitive categories, Agility took the accolade following a ballot of Supply Chain Asia magazine readers and a final decision by a panel of distinguished judges comprising of Asia’s leading supply chain academics and leaders.

 
“Agility has made significant investments to build and acquire the assets that make us a leading global provider, with particular strength in emerging markets across Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Africa,” said Jens Wessel, SVP, Sales and Marketing, Asia Pacific. “To be recognized for our efforts by our peers for three consecutive years is a great honor. On behalf of our 22,000 colleagues in Asia and around the world, we are very proud to accept this award.”


To earn the “Global 3PL of the Year” award, Agility had to meet a range of criteria that included the size and scale of its global network, how it works with customers to better understand their requirements, launch/upgrade of new products and services on an ongoing basis to match market demand, and its approach to sustainability and social responsibility issues.


The Supply Chain Asia Logistics Awards brings recognition to corporations and individuals in the fields of supply chain and logistics. Each year, the awards ceremony brings together senior industry executives for a five-star gala dinner and awards presentation. The event rotates between the major Asian supply chain hubs of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.


This award follows the “Best Solution for Sustainability” award, which Agility received at the Asian Manufacturing Awards in October.
