SINGAPORE (January 11, 2016) – C.H. Robinson, one of the world's largest third party logistics providers (3PL), was recognized as a leading 3PL in Asia by two organizations. Both nominations are testaments to the C.H. Robinson employees locally in the Asia-Pacific region and around the world who work for their customers every day. These awards take on special significance, as C.H. Robinson is a service company that strives to provide outstanding service, effective communication, and innovative solutions to customers around the world.

As part of the plan to offer transportation and logistics expertise and innovative supply chain solutions on both a local and global scale, C.H. Robinson first expanded operations into Asia with the opening of its Hong Kong office in 2003. Today, the company has a network of 39 offices and more than 1,500 employees in Asia, and is one of the largest Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) from Asia to the United States.

C.H. Robinson was named the winner of the inaugural Eye for Transport (eft) Asia-Pacific (APAC) 3PL Customer Choice Awards in the category of Best 3PL for Industrial Supply Chains.

The eft APAC 3PL Awards aim to recognize 3PLs that deliver continuous excellence in logistics operations and provide superior service to their customers. Manufacturers and retailers nominate 3PLs in each category; the shortlist is then vetted and tallied by eft. The winners and runners-up in each category were announced and celebrated at eft's APAC 3PL Summit & Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum.

C.H. Robinson was also a finalist in the 2015 Supply Chain Asia Awards in the category of Global 3PL of the Year. The awards, organized by Supply Chain Asia, promote service quality and customer relationship excellence in Asia, recognizing those at every level who contribute to the success of both their customers and the organizations they serve. Companies are assessed for overall effectiveness and quality through a 360-degree assessment using the Customer Service Quality Standard; the final winners are chosen by public voting.

These accolades reaffirm C.H. Robinson's exceeding standards amongst the most dynamic logistics market in the region, and drive us in the continued pursuit of our vision to deliver the most superior customer service anywhere," said Tony Tan, regional manager of the Southeast Asia region at C.H. Robinson.
