The Port of Singapore was on Monday (9 November) conferred the “Best Seaport – Asia” for the 32nd time at the 2020 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards held in Hong Kong.
This is a testament to the Port of Singapore’s efficiency and continued leadership in driving maritime innovation, said the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).
“As a global hub port, the Port of Singapore continues to play a key role in keeping global supply chains going, particularly as the world economy starts re-opening,” said Quah Ley Hoon, Chief Executive of MPA.
“While we are humbled by this affirmation and thank the industry for their support, we will continue to strive to uphold high standards of service and drive initiatives that enable a low-carbon future for the maritime community.”
The AFLAS Awards is organised by Asia Cargo News to honour organisations for demonstrating leadership as well as consistency in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability, explained the MPA. Winners were determined by votes cast by readers of the publication.
