The company won at the SBR International Business Awards 2017.
LF Logistics Singapore is committed to delivering fast, reliable, and cost-effective logistics solutions for the Footwear & Apparel, Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), Food & Beverage, and Retail industries.
Particularly in Asia, the company recognised that the region's e-commerce market will accelerate intra-region containerised trade by 5.1% yearly, and thus it rode the tide by opening a 1m sq ft green logistics hub in Singapore.
