GEODIS wins ‘Best Logistics Service Provider – Project Cargo’ at the 2021 AFLAS Awards

Sustained innovation and high service quality place GEODIS at the very top of the Best Logistics Service Provider category

The Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) annual awards celebrate exemplary leadership and relationship management as well as top-notch solutions within the industry. The awards set the benchmark for service provider excellence amongst air and shipping lines, airports, and seaports, as well as third-party logistics and other associated industries.


With bottlenecks at major ports, container pileups, and shipment delays, project logistics providers—handling customers with complex and oversized transport requirements—have been pushed to quickly adapt and uncover new methods to meet the relentless demand of these large-scale projects. Despite this difficult climate, GEODIS has been recognized for tackling the constraints of these challenges with fresh, robust, and targeted solutions. This includes seamlessly navigating the complex technical requirements present in transporting high voltage transformers as well as delivering specialized solutions across surface, barge and ocean transportation. 


“Our Project Logistics services are centered around innovation and designing ways in which we can re-configure our customers’ needs and dilemmas into a seamless, cost-effective and reliable road map,” said Chris Cahill, Managing Director, North Asia Sub Region. “We are honored to have these ongoing efforts recognized and will continue to deliver quality solutions that can carry our customers’ businesses forward.”

“We have always been, and will continue to be, a pioneer in the Project Logistics sector, rising up to new challenges with dynamic and reliable services, incorporating cutting-edge engineering logistics, tailored specifically to meet the unique requirements of every project,” added Frederic de Prat, Regional Director, Asia Pacific.
