The Port of Singapore won the “Best Seaport – Asia” award at the 2020 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (Aflas) Awards held in Hong Kong on Monday (Nov 9).
This is a reinforcing testament to the Port of Singapore’s efficiency and continued leadership as a global logistics hub.
The Aflas Awards are organised by the publication Asia Cargo News to recognise organisations that demonstrate leadership as well as consistency in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability.

As a global hub port, the Port of Singapore continues to play a key role in keeping global supply chains going, particularly as the world economy starts re-opening however with developments like the BRI, shifting supply chains and the desire by companies to pursue near-shoring opportunities, how long Singapore can maintain this enviable position remains to be seen.
