APL Wins Nissan Motors Award


APL Logistics has received the Best Support and Coordination 2010 award from Nissan Motors in Thailand. This is the first time the Thailand unit of the global automotive manufacturer is handing out awards recognizing service excellence in its supply chain.

"We're pleased to be recognized by one of the largest global manufacturers in the automotive industry, one demanding nothing less than precision in its supply chain," said Dhanes Mekintharanggur, APL Logistics' director responsible for Thailand operations. "Our commitment to service quality, versatility and operational excellence is being recognized."

Since 2009, APL Logistics has been Nissan Motors' logistics partner in Thailand handling the supply of locally-produced automotive parts required by the car manufacturer's Samutprakarn plant.

APL Logistics manages 50 trucks making 80 trips in scheduled milk-runs, picking up components from multiple part supplier locations, before consolidating and delivering them just-in-time to the plant for the car assembly process.
