 Maersk Line, a leading global shipping conglomerate, has been awarded LG Electronics’ ‘Best Partner Award’. The award recognises the LG partner that performed the highest reliability in combination of LG’s internal carrier preference score from 30 factories, 120 branches and headquarters, and among 42 carriers.

“The strong partnership, unmatched schedule and long-term relationship with Maersk Line allow LGE to easily handle their global deliveries and also enable us to save logistics cost as well as manage delivery of time-sensitive electronics efficiently without contingency plan every single week,” said Jong Yun Choi, head, Global Logistics, LG Electronics, while presenting the award to Maersk Line.

According to him, LG expects more business opportunities with Maersk Line for the coming years. “Global collaboration and communication among many different stakeholders contributed to the success of creating a compelling value proposition and delivering the promised service,” he added.

Thomas Lindy Sorensen, Maersk Line Korea Cluster Top, said, “We are very proud to receive this award from LG Electronics. This shows that the hard work done by the Key Client team spread across the globe is being recognised by LG Electronics. LG is an important customer to Maersk Line and this recognition should be seen as a confirmation of the value both companies see from this cooperation. We look forward to continuing to build on this great relationship.”

LG Electronics (LGE) is a Korean electronics company and a flagship of Korea’s LG Group which recorded a turnover of $128 billion in 2012. In order to improve their logistics competitiveness, LGE is moving beyond focusing only on price, product and transit-time when choosing a carrier. More and more, they are looking at reliability, ease of business and a sustainable partnership. By partnering with Maersk Line, LGE is improving on these parameters.

Maersk Line’s global reach and high reliability were perfect matches for this desire. Based on LG’s own measurement, Maersk Line came out on top in 2012 with C.
