Present on May 15th at the 2018 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards (AFLAS) organized by Asia Cargo News and held in Shanghai at the Wanda Reign on the Bund, Bolloré Logistics received – for the second consecutive year – the Best Green Logistics Operator award in front of the transport and logistics community.

Mr. Stéphane GUESNIER, Regional Director at Bolloré Logistics Greater China, was honored to receive the award on behalf of the company from the hands of Mr. Eddie CHUI, Assistant General Manager, Aviation Logistics of Airport Authority Hong Kong.

“Bolloré Logistics is truly honored to have received this ‘Best Green Logistics Operator’ award for the second year in a row, as we keep extending our efforts towards more sustainability throughout the region,” mentions Mr. Stéphane GUESNIER. “Our Asia-Pacific teams are fully engaged to promote green solution to customers, but also to raise awareness internally through various local green staff activities,” he adds.

Organized annually by Asia Cargo News – the only newspaper covering logistics and cargo supply chains in the Asia-Pacific region – this event recognizes transport and logistics service providers for their excellence in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability. Thousands of shippers and customers voted for the 2018 AFLAS winners, therefore truly reflecting the opinion of the industry experts. The nomination criteria followed a technical evaluation. At first, the top eight firms in each category were short-listed; after which, the top three firms in each category made up the final shortlist.

A Glance at Bolloré Logistics’ Green Projects in Asia-Pacific

Bolloré Logistics has been deeply committed to greener transportation by partnering with the best-in-class carriers, making the newest and greenest transport modes available to all customers. Our detailed in-house CO2 calculation methodology is a key tool for our customers to understand, monitor and reduce their environmental footprint.

Innovative solutions have been imagined and implemented, with a focus on Asia road transportation and the opening of two road lines, Singapore – Kuala Lumpur and Singapore – Bangkok; a solid alternative to air shipment allowing a similar lead time paired with +90% reduction of CO2 emissions. Bolloré Logistics also joined Green Freight Asia, an industry-led program focused on lowering fuel consumption across Asia-Pacific, and a key partner on our road to greener transportation.

As a key regional center and the largest warehousing location for Asia-Pacific, Bolloré Logistics Singapore has also been driving continuous efforts to promote greener solutions to its customers. Warehouses are implementing the “3R: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” policy across the city-state to minimize wastage and reduce the environmental impact on the environment. Offices and operations keep going more and more paperless; and our Green Hub in Singapore – Green Mark Platinum* and LEED Gold** certified – is getting even more energy-efficient with an upgraded IOT system.
