Damco wins award for sustainability in logistics


Efforts in helping customers to reduce their carbon footprint have earned logistics provider Damco the Supply Chain Sustainability Award at the 8th annual SCM Logistics Excellence Awards.

“We’d like to congratulate Damco as they are recognised for their efforts in working with their clients and stakeholders in reducing their carbon footprint. Sustainability and green logistics are critical to the industry’s growth and with Damco’s excellent track record in championing methodologies and processes in enhancing their partners’ sustainability initiatives in conjunction with their service delivery – Damco is helping their partners drive change to green their operations,” said Eleanor Uy, General Manager, Terrapinn, the conference organiser.

It is the second time Damco has been awarded by its peers at the SCM Logistics Excellence Awards. Last year the company, part of the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group, won the Supply Chain Best Partnership Award.

The awards are part of the SCM Logistics World Conference, held at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore, which brings together executives in the supply chain and logistics industry. Delegates at the conference, along with supply chain practitioners from around the world, cast their votes in a global voting system.

Accepting the award, Damco’s Global Head of Green Logistics, Sarah Flagg, said: “This is a clear testament to the advances we have made within the field of green logistics and to the strength of our customer partnerships in creating sustainable supply chains.

“We are very proud of the award and we will continue to keep green logistics and sustainability as a core component of our supply chain management services.”

The SCM Logistics Excellence Awards were created to honour and generate public recognition of the efforts, accomplishments, and positive contributions of organisations and individuals in Asia’s supply chain and logistics sectors.
