(RED BANK, N.J.) — Evergreen Line was named the recipient of the 2015 LOG-NET E-Commerce Excellence Award presented Tuesday, March 3, in Long Beach, Calif., at the Trans Pacific Maritime conference.
LOG-NET, the leading integrator of ocean carriers and their customers, presented this award in conjunction with the Journal of Commerce, and was accepted by Roy Amalfitano, president of Evergreen Shipping Agency (America) Corp., North America agents for Evergreen Line.
The award is given in recognition of Evergreen's outstanding achievement in processing customer electronic information, said John Motley, LOG-NET president. "The competition is extremely difficult and analyzes customer set-up, completeness, timeliness, accuracy and deployment across customers of multiple sizes and geographic domains," he said.
The award is recognized as the top such honor in electronic commerce in the international trade and transportation industry and recognizes Evergreen's commitment to customers in every area of operations. "Evergreen has done an excellent job in the face of great competition," said Motley.
Amalfitano said: "We at Evergreen place great emphasis on what our customers need to remain competitive. E-commerce has been a company and customer priority since it even became a factor in shipping. This is certainly a meaningful honor in a year where our industry faced enormous challenges."
Evergreen in 2003 was named LOG-NET's first-ever recipient of this award, as well as in 2004. In the following years, Evergreen was among the top five and this year came out on top.
