Damco won two awards for excellence in logistics and sustainability at the 3rd annual International Produce (IPL) logistics conference held in the UK last month, the firm announced.

Firstly, Damco’s overall global contribution to IPL was recognised when they won the evening’s most coveted award, ‘Service Provider of the Year’.

IPL operations director Jason Kelly said Damco had won the title of Service Provider of the Year “for their flexibility, support and exceptional service whilst also supporting IPL to exploit alternative modes of transport and reduce its carbon footprint.”

IPL, who are part of the Walmart group, also awarded Damco’s UK operation with “Clearing and Forwarding Agent of the Year”.

IPL Operations Director Jason Kelly said that this award was given to Damco UK: “for their constant focus on IPL’s account and for providing outstanding support to our individual business units. They have been instrumental in supporting our European logistics team in setting up an ex works supply chain from Morocco.”

On winning this award, Damco perishables business development manager James Hammond said: “I am very proud that we have received an award that shows the type of dedication that we strive to deliver to all our customers. In this case, we have helped IPL to roll out their direct sourcing strategy, which this year is taking off in Morocco, their second largest non-European source country. Damco in Morocco and Spain were instrumental in the set up in this market.”
