Smart Freight Forwarder Award opens for entries

Who is the most innovative freight forwarder striving for digital excellence? Let´s find out!

Increasing technology innovations such as digitalization and automation are transforming the entire supply chain and logistics industry. Previously known for heavy usage of manual processes, logistics is one of the most impacted industries when it comes to the implementation of cutting-edge solutions. The understanding of the importance of logistics innovations is a prerequisite for further success and expansion of the freight forwarding companies and hence why we want to celebrate those who think well ahead and are looking into the smarter and greener future.

There are two award categories introduced for freight forwarders:

The Multinational Smart Freight Forwarder Award

The Regional Smart Freight Forwarder Award

We will pay close attention to the fact, how the freight forwarding companies understood the urgency to address new challenges brought up by the pandemic, which additional procedures have been implemented in order to optimize their operations, how they adjusted to ever-changing regulations and how they elevated the customer experience.

Generic criteria include:
  • Transparency
  • Real-time supply chain visibility
  • Warehouse automation
  • Sustainability
  • Advanced analytics
  • Data standards
  • Freight and route optimization
