APL today won the Best Trans-Pacific Shipping Line accolade at the 28th Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards (AFSCAs). This is the third time in four years that APL has emerged as the preferred liner in this category, following wins in 2011 and 2012.

Determined by votes cast by readers of Cargonews Asia, APL clinched the award for its leading performance in schedule integrity, customer service support and its comprehensive port calls in the Trans-Pacific trade.

“The container shipping business has become a much more competitive and demanding business than before,” said APL President Kenneth Glenn. “With APL coming up tops in the Trans-Pacific trade despite the challenging conditions there, this award is all the more satisfying to us. We thank our customers for the strong vote of confidence and we are inspired to develop more cost-effective and reliable solutions to meet their transportation needs.”

Organised by Cargonews Asia, a leading logistics and cargo supply chain publication, the AFSCAs are among the most prestigious and longest-running awards in the Asian transportation and logistics sector.
