APL Logistics clinches Kellogg Company’s top logistics awards.
SINGAPORE, 30 May 2012
APL Logistics has clinched both of Kellogg Company’s top logistics honors this year, said the global logistics service provider. APL Logistics’ Fontana warehousing facility has also created history by winning two awards from Kellogg in the same year.
Each year, Kellogg, the world's leading producer of cereal and a leading producer of snacks and frozen foods, recognizes the top performers among its network of eight warehousing facilities across the U.S. by handing out the Top Gun and Builder’s Choice awards. APL Logistics’ facilities in Fontana and Tracy share the prestigious Top Gun title this year, while the Fontana warehouse also received the Builder’s Choice award. Both Fontana and Tracy are in California.
“APL Logistics has been unmatched in its safety performance as well as on-time delivery to Kellogg’s customers,” said Tony Deleonabreu, Kellogg Distribution Director. “I’m very impressed with its strong and dedicated teams, which are focused on making both APL Logistics and Kellogg successful.”
“APL Logistics is proud to be recognized by Kellogg,” said Dave Frentzel, APL Logistics’ Vice President of Global Contract Logistics Services. “This is a testament to our team’s commitment and dedication to continually add value to our customers’ business.”
The Kellogg Top Gun competition recognizes the top performing warehouse facility across a broad mix of operational metrics. First and foremost is safety. The Builder’s Choice award is given to the top performing value added services provider.
In order to win both awards, the facility must maintain high standards of warehouse safety and performance metrics while outperforming all other facilities across the Kellogg network. APL Logistics’ Fontana facility has now won the Top Gun six times and has collected the Builder’s Choice in the most recent two years. Its Tracy facility has won three prior Top Gun awards.
