Same procedure as every year: On December14, 2018, our “Carrier of the Year Awards” were presented in Hamburg, again. Our best sea freight service providers in the categories FCL and LCL Global as well as FCL and LCL Europe were honored at a festive Wine & Dinner event. The big winners in both categories were Hapag-Lloyd and WorldWide Alliance, who each defended their titles from last year.
The Hamburg-based shipping company Hapag-Lloyd thus defended its leading position among the worldwide FCL carriers. In the category of global LCL carriers, the WorldWide Alliance beat the competition for the twelfth time in a row. At European level, the winners were also Hapag-Lloyd (FCL) and Worldwide Alliance (LCL).
The annual award for our best service providers now enjoys a respectable status within the industry. And so Jost Hellmann, Reiner Heiken, Bart de Vries, Gunnar Haid, Norman Setzkorn, Johannes Saade and Michael Amri did not miss the opportunity to present the awards jointly to the winners.

In order to be able to compare the performance of freight forwarders on a global level, a survey was carried out in advance among our worldwide sea freight employees. KPIs were again used to evaluate the carriers, providing information on the performance data of all freight forwarders and thus enabling an objective assessment to be made.
With this award our company expresses the great appreciation for the support and partnership with our various carriers. We are convinced that this approach will help us to successfully differentiate ourselves as a company from our competitors. The excellent feedback we received again this year confirms this.
