Yesterday evening (17th January 2018), Damco handed out a total of 7 strategic awards at their Global Leadership Conference in Copenhagen. They were focused on recognising overall performance in 2017, and the categories included Best Customer Win, Best Example of Cultural Behaviours and the People’s Choice Award.
We’re delighted to announce that Twill has been presented with Damco’s Best Global Strategy Initiative Award 2017. Despite only launching in April last year, we achieved our target for new customers more than a month ahead of plan in 2017!
It’s clear to see that Twill is already making its mark not only on Damco, but the entire freight forwarding industry – and we’re proud to be writing new chapters about what our future looks like every single day.
Reinout Croon, Global Head of Strategy at Damco and the sponsor of the award commented: “Although our strategy is for the long term, it’s also important to celebrate the early successes we have. In the past year, Twill has really confirmed to be one of those successes. It’s a growth accelerator for Damco and will become more and more important in our business.”
Troels Stovring, CEO of Twill added:“I want to thank everyone in Damco for the support that they have given us. We couldn’t have done this without all the great teams in the countries we rolled out in 2017. Special recognition has to also go to all the Damco teams in China, the UK, Spain, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Czech Republic and Poland who have been instrumental in getting Twill off the ground.
“The collaboration between Twill and Damco in 2017 has been key – and while I truly believe that software, customer focus, new energy and new skills will transform our business, I have always said that this will only happen if we mix it with the right foundation, experience and already existing assets. That is why Twill is a standalone start-up utilizing the operational set-up of Damco – a top 20 global freight forwarder.”
All of us Twillers are really excited to have won this award, and we can’t wait to continue making Twill an even bigger success together with the support of the countries we’ll go to in 2018! Watch this space!
