Following a review of operating standards within global logistics service provision, the Global Institute of Logistics has named Hellmann Worldwide Logistics as the worlds "Best in Class" logistics service provider. The main reason for the accreditation was Hellmann’s commitment to building relationships with customers, partners and employees throughout the world.

The announcement follows a rigorous programme of study undertaken by the Institute’s research department following on from an in-depth analysis of logistics services providers with a view to identifying the organization, which would illustrate the Institute’s classification of a ‘best in class’ provider.

Within this parameter the pre-eminent criteria for the accreditation of leading global LSP, was that the organization identified, short-listed and subsequently honoured with the accolade, would demonstrate an exceptional level of regard for the role and function of relationship excellence in the development of their business.

In keeping with the Institute's published thinking, the measurement of the 'Relationship Orientation' quotient leveraged was the most important criterion in the final adjudication of the quality of logistics service provided.

“"We are very pleased to receive Best in Class Global Logistics Service Provider accreditation from a well known and reputable institution (the Global Institute of Logistics). We are exceptionally proud since the most important criteria used in the selection was 'Relationship Orientation' and as you all know, we are in the business of relationships! The success of the Hellmann Network has been, and will continue to be, based on successful relationships; amongst our people and partners, and above all, with our customers. The two wild geese in our logo illustrate our strong belief in building long-term partnerships. Communication and relationship are certainly the most important ingredients in achieving this. At Hellmann, we strive to understand our customers' needs and we aim to grow through our customers' growth" JOST HELLMANN PRESIDENT HELLMANN WORLDWIDE LOGISTICS

Kieran Ring CEO at the Institute, speaking at the formal presentation of the accreditation to Klaus and Jost Hellmann at the worldwide meeting of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics in Singapore, said:

"I am delighted to announce Hellmann Worldwide Logistics (HWL) as as the recipient of our  Best in Class Global Logistics Service Provider accreditation. It is our considered opinion that HWL are the finest example of a relationship driven global logistics service provider and evidently meet with the specific criteria set down by our research department. Our research  concluded that for HWL relationships are key to every aspect of their work, as a family owned and operated business Hellmann has survived and prospered for four generations since its foundation in Osnabrueck in Germany in 1871, by putting the customer first and placing integrity and trust at the heart of every single relationship both within and outside the organization"


And Mr Klaus Hellmann added:

"This Award recognizes what all our colleagues do so well. It would not be possible to achieve our goals and this sort of recognition without our people all around the world. Entrepreneurial spirit, open and honest communication both internally and externally is what makes us successful and we are very proud that this is being recognized in today's competitive market. Thank you!"
