DHL Worldwide Express proudly announced that it has been awarded the ‘Best Express Service’ for the 15th consecutive year at the prestigious Asian Freight Industry Awards (AFIA) 2001. The company has continued to set records, as it is the only company to have won the ‘Best Express Service’ award since AFIA was inaugurated in 1987.
Marc Duale, chief operating officer of DHL Asia-Pacific said, “We are, as always, honored to be acknowledged by our customers, readers of Cargonews Asia and the AFIA. Winning this award is a tremendous accolade and says volumes about our people, and their collective effort in making this company the best in the industry.
“We are very proud of this achievement but we are definitely not going to rest on our laurels. We continue to work hard for our customers, striving to improve our service and be able to meet all their shipment and distribution needs.”
Mr. Duale continued, “To this end we are investing heavily in the region to strengthen our network, infrastructure and service channels. For instance, we have committed US$125 million to expand our network of service centers in Japan and US$75 million last year to upgrade our operations in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.”
