Eddie Teh, group CEO of PSAI, said: “On behalf of PSA Group’s management, staff and unions, I wish to thank the maritime industry for its continued confidence and support, and we look forward to many more years of serving them across our expanding global network of ports.”
Evergreen Marine Corp meanwhile was named ‘Best Shipping Line – Intra Asia’ for the fourth consecutive year. Patrick Phoon, vice chairman, Evergreen Shipping Agency (Singapore) Pte Ltd, said: “We have invested heavily to provide customers with an unparalleled regional service network, combining Evergreen’s reputation for quality service with comprehensive port coverage. The AFSCA award is welcome recognition of our efforts.”
The AFSCA accolade is particularly significant because it is based on votes from readers of leading regional freight newspaper Cargonews Asia, representing shippers from across Asia, rather than by a panel of judges. More than 12,200 readers of the paper were polled to select best-in-class companies in 42 industry categories. Award winners are regarded as benchmarks of excellence in their respective areas.
