Welcome to the nomination survey for the 2021 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain

It is that time of year again when nominations open for the 2021 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards.

2020 was a challenging year for everyone, and we were honoured to be able to celebrate with many of the 2020 AFLAS winners late last year. We all hope that 2021 will mark the start of a process where we can all get back to some kind of normal.

We are introducing two new awards this year, to represent changes and growth within the industry. Best Logistics Service Provider - eCommerce, and Best Logistics Service Provider - Warehousing, will recognise leaders in thiese rapidly evolving and expanding areas.

As ever, the awards are designed to honour the respective winning organizations for demonstrating leadership as well as consistency in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability. Many firms have shown outstanding innovation and leadership in the last 12 months, and I am sure this year’s awards will be very illuminating. We welcome your input in helping to determine this year's shortlist.

Please take a few minutes to complete as much of the nomination form as you feel able to. It is up to the service users to use their overall, first-hand experience to determine which service providers should be nominated. Guidelines for each category are included on each nomination page.

Following the nomination round, the names of the top eight nominees will appear in the final ballot. A technical evaluation round will be carried out by Asia Cargo News to ensure that only nominations meeting the technical criteria are valid.

Please note that the nomination period will end on February 28, 2021, and the awards will be presented at a gala dinner in September 2021.

Many thanks in advance for your nominations, and I look forward to your continued participation in the 2021 AFLAS Awards.

Best regards,

Darren Barton
