Kalmar Asia Pacific Region was also named Best Logistics Company in the Asia Pacific, as well as carrying off two individual awards. Ken Loh, the group’s president, was named APBEST Strategist Of The Year, and Eugene Che, senior TQM manager, was named APBEST KPI Achievement Driver Of The Year.
Ken Loh said: “Although the examination process takes about a year, culminating in interviews with senior managers from Kalmar Asia Pacific Region, these awards actually acknowledge that we have worked for many years to ensure that we apply only the very best business practices.”
APBEST was founded to enable companies in the Asia Pacific region to achieve business excellence, providing benchmarks for management and organisational excellence. Organisations are evaluated to assess their performance in leadership, customer focus, people management, process management, social responsibility and overall business results.
