Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) named Best Logistics Provider - Rail at 2019 at Asian freight awards


THE Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) has been named Best Logistics Service Provider - Rail at the Asian Freight Logistics and Supply Chain Awards (AFLAS).

The customer-nominated award recognises CP's leadership in service quality, innovation, customer-relationship management and reliability. CP was the only North American railway nominated for the globally recognised award.

"Canadian Pacific is honoured to be recognised by our customers with this award," said CP president and CEO Keith Creel.

"The CP teams in Asia and North America are focused on driving sustainable, profitable growth and this award demonstrates our customers' confidence in CP's service offering. We are committed to providing our customers with superior and reliable freight rail options from the Port of Vancouver to the rest of North America," he said.

Since 2016, CP has steadily increased its market share at GCT Deltaport and with the Deltaport Rail Expansion Project complete, CP and its customers are benefiting from increased capacity and production at Canada's largest and most technologically advanced ocean terminal.

"Since opening our Shanghai office last year, we have focused on deepening our relationships in Asia, starting with gaining a better understanding of our customers' needs," said Asia managing director Corey Heinz. "This award is in recognition of that commitment to superior customer service."
