RMIT’s College of Business has won the Best Educational Course Provider in Logistics in the Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) awards.
Hosted and organized annually by Asia Cargo News, the AFLAS awards recognise leading service providers in the freight, logistics and supply chain industry for demonstrating leadership, as well as consistency in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability.
Professor Caroline Chan, Head of the School of Business IT and Logistics, was in attendance to accept the award.
“I am extremely proud of the RMIT logistics and supply chain management programs and to have won this industry-based award is truly a nod to the level of professionalism, dedication and work we do,” Chan said.
The awards were based on nominations and voting by more than 15,000 Asia Cargo News readers and enews subscribers.
Following a technical evaluation to ensure that the nominees met the stipulated criteria, voting began in January, with the top eight nominees for each of the 39 categories appearing on the final ballot.
These nominees were reduced to three finalists in each category. For the best education providers, RMIT University competed with Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
With thousands of votes cast, the results signal an acknowledgement of service excellence and leadership by the Asian freight, logistics and supply chain industry.
Other winners were Singapore Changi Airport (Best Green airport), and DHL (Best 3PL).
