The company won the Bronze Award for Overall Excellence, the ‘Shipping and Shipping-related Services’ title and ‘Large Sector’ category for companies with over 1,000 full-time employees or an annual revenue of more than 1 billion LKR. It is the first shipping and logistics services provider ever to win the Overall Excellence Award.
