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.

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.
