FOR the second year in a row Singapore-based APL Logistics has received the best supplier award from US manufacturing technology giant Emerson's Rosemount business unit.

Tom Moser, president of Emerson Process Management, handed out the 2010 Supplier of the Year award to APL in Rosemount's annual strategic supplier summit held at Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"It's an honour for APL Logistics to be recognised by Emerson Rosemount two years in a row," said Tony Zasimovich, APL Logistics' vice president for international logistics services.

Last year, a programme designed by APL Logistics enabled Rosemount to cut its waiting time for access to imported materials for production in Singapore from between five and seven days to just 12 hours upon arrival.

This enables Rosemount to eliminate unnecessary urgent airfreight and production downtime. Rosemount also benefitted from full visibility of inventory movement and improved supply chain efficiencies with cost savings of 25 per cent.

Emerson is a diversified global manufacturing and technology company offering a wide range of products and services in the areas of network power, process management, industrial automation, climate technologies, and tools and storage businesses.
