The Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc (nahco aviance) has won the Best Aircraft Handling Company and Transport chief executive officer of the Year 2017 for West Africa
The award was announced at the Logistics, Warehouse and Supply Chain Awards 2017, organized by London-based Transport News International.
The awards coordinator, Steve Simpson, said the magazine found nahco aviance most suitable in its category of entry particularly its leadership of the segment and the key achievements of the company’s chief executive officer, Mr. Norbert Bielderman, who had kept the firm above waters in an economy in recession.
Nahco aviance is one of few global operators which won segments of the awards.
Other winners are Dnata, BF Global Logistics, NLI International Corp and Freightera Inc., Saxon Air Charter Ltd, Filmline Ltd, GEODIS, South African Angel Gabriel Aeronautics and PRL Group.
In announcing the awards, the newsmagazine said the 2017 Logistics, Warehouse and Supply Chain Awards was designed to recognise and celebrate the achievements made by companies, teams and individuals due to their tireless efforts and dedication to their work.
It said that on a daily basis they work to ensure that the communication between a company and the supplier is strong, and efficient.
“Supply chains keep the corporate world moving, and therefore this often overlooked market plays a vital part in the global business landscape.
“As such it has been a true honour to be able to showcase the hard work and dedication of these exceptional firms, and the individuals behind them, and I would just like to wish them the very best of luck for the future.
“Transport News prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition,” said Simpson.
He added: “Within the transport industry, communication between networks is key in the planning, implementation and coordination of the business or other operations. The network that runs between a company and its suppliers to produce and distribute a specific product efficiently is essential to this industry. These factors, executed by the companies, firms and individuals of these dynamic sectors, are what form the backbone of the transport industry.”
