Shipping line Safmarine ended 2012 on a high note when one of its key customers, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, presented the line with three prestigious awards.
Safmarine was judged the winner of the 2012 Hellmann Silver Global Carrier of the Year Award, the 2012 Europe Regional Carrier of the Year award and the 2012 OMEA (Oceania/Middle East/Africa) Regional Carrier of the Year award.
According to Michael Amri, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics' Vice President, Seafreight, Europe, "Safmarine received this recognition because of its strong and dedicated key account management programme, as well as the good relationship it has established with Hellmann representatives throughout the world. In short, Safmarine understands the Hellmann structure very well and is a deserving winner," he said.
This is not the first time Safmarine has been recognised by Hellmann, according to Stephen Knight, Safmarine's Global Head of Sales.
"Safmarine received the Hellmann Global Gold Award in 2009 and 2010, and the Global Silver Award in 2011 and 2012. The fact that we have received awards every year for the last four years is proof of the strength of the Hellmann/Safmarine partnership and Safmarine's commitment to delivering a consistent, high quality shipping service."
" I'd like to thank all Safmariners for their hard work, dedication and contribution to the Hellmann/Safmarine partnership ..." said Oliver Nicolaysen, Hellmann's Vice President.
