Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has been recognised with the "Excellence Award For Core Values" by Volvo Logistics at the company’s supplier day, held in Gothenburg this week.
The award was in the Ocean Services category and praised WWL for its "consistent holistic and outstanding work towards sustainability that serves as an inspiration to others." It also recognised WWL for its "tough environmental objectives and visions, well ahead of legislation, set within concrete goals."
The award was presented to Kristofer Andrén, Managing Director, and Corporate Account Manager, WWL, Sweden branch office, by Åke Niklasson, CEO, Volvo Logistics Corporation.
"WWL is deeply honoured to receive this inaugural Volvo Logistics Corporation award,” said Andrén. “It is gratifying to learn that our three core values of safety, quality and the environment are shared and mirrored by Volvo."
Volvo Logistics has used WWL as its premier outbound logistics service provider for more than 20 years.
From Sweden, WWL ships Volvo vehicles on various routes to five continents and will shortly be offering the company and other customers in Sweden a new twice-monthly direct sailing to Australia.
