Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that they have emerged as winner of the Lloyd’s List “Excellence in Container Shipping” Asia Pacific award. A total of five major container shipping companies were shortlisted as finalists for the award.

“Only 18 months since our original “go-live” start-up, it is both humbling and an honour for ONE to be selected as the winner of the Lloyd’s List “Excellence in Container Shipping” award for Asia-Pacific. As a new company we had our initial start-up challenges back in 2018, but with the great efforts of our staff, customers and business partners we quickly overcame these and stabilised our global operations. We have since moved on to restoring service delivery to the previous high quality and exacting standards of our 3J legacy companies and are now fully focused on moving ONE to the next level of operational excellence.” said Jeremy Nixon, Chief Executive Officer, Ocean Network Express. “Thank you to all our staff and management for their great efforts, and we can all take great pride and encouragement from this prestigious award’s recognition.”

This award recognizes the containership owner or operator that has best responded to the changing commercial and regulatory landscape through new ocean shipping configurations and port pairings, simplified booking and documentation processes, action to reduce ship pollution and other innovations that have made the supply chain more efficient. Entrants must demonstrate profitability, leadership and excellence in the sector and provide examples of exceptional performance in operational matters such as safety, reliability, efficiency and new business processes.
