Taiwan headquartered logistics provider, Dimerco Express Group, has been named as ‘Airfreight Forwarder of The Year 2016’ in the Air Cargo Week Awards at a prestigious ceremony in Shanghai, attended by over 350 air cargo professionals.
Commenting on the award, Mr Edward Lin of Dimerco said, “This is the first time that Dimerco has been recognized for exceptional performance in airfreight forwarding, and is a measure of our growing standing within the global logistics community. We were particularly honoured to be selected from an impressive list of global finalists by our peers from within the air cargo community.”
The accolade is the latest in a series of achievements for the fast growing company, which was also nominated recently in both “Best Logistics Service Provider – Air Freight” and “Best Green Logistics Operator” categories in the 2016 AFLAS Award which recognises excellence in logistics services throughout the Asia Pacific region.
Other recent milestones include, Dimerco subsidiary Diversified Freight System (DFS) Corporation being granted the AEO by Sung Ru-Yao, Director of Keelung Customs Office, Taiwan, which will allow Dimerco customers speedier and safer transit through customs.
Continued global expansion
Last month Dimerco announced the opening of an office in Ahmedabad, expanding its global network as well as its footprint in the sub-continent.
Edward Lin explains, “Dimerco has long-term plans for expansion in India, one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Ahmedabad is one of a hundred Indian cities selected to develop as a smart city under Modi’s flagship Smart Cities Mission; Dimerco is the first Taiwan logistics provider to enter the marketplace in India and Ahmedabad will be our fourth office.”
He continues, “India is a booming market for international commerce and we believe has strong growth potential for years to come. We are expanding our sales and operation teams for trading and exporting to the U.S., especially for Telecommunications, High-Tech and Automotive industry customers in India.”
