International maritime experts recently named APL the world’s best shipping line, honoring the organization with the Global Ocean Carrier of the Year award at the Containerisation International Awards ceremony, which occurred in London on October 13th.
An eight-strong judging panel selected APL from a field of finalists that included Maersk Line, CMA CGM, and Hyundai Merchant Marine.
The maritime industry honored APL as the world’s top shipping line for the second time in three weeks. Back in September, the organization also won the Ship Operator Award at the Lloyd’s List global awards.
APL also earned the Innovation IT of the Year award for its proprietary SMARTemp service. SMARTemp uses satellite tracking to continually monitor the temperature and humidity of refrigerated containers carrying sensitive cargo – making oceanfreight a viable option for shippers with cargo traditionally moved via air.
