APL Named Best Global Ocean Carrier

(Press Release)
Friday, October 14, 2011

International maritime experts named APL the world’s best shipping line, and honored it for outstanding innovation. The Singapore-based container carrier received the Global Ocean Carrier of the Year award as well as the Innovation IT of the Year award here at the Containerization International awards. An eight-strong judging panel selected APL from a field of finalists including Maersk Line, CMA CGM and Hyundai Merchant Marine. “We’re delighted to once more be recognized by industry peers for shipping excellence,” said APL President Kenneth Glenn. “This is an affirmation of our focus on providing customers with schedule reliability and service integrity.”
APL earned the Innovation IT of the Year award for its proprietary SMARTemp service.  SMARTemp uses satellite tracking to continually monitor the temperature and humidity of refrigerated containers carrying sensitive cargo – making oceanfreight a viable option for shippers with cargo traditionally moved via air.
