With these awards, DHL recognises those companies that have carried out excellent work related to the export of their business over the year. Andoni Hernández, Garnica Logistics Manager, collected the prize last January 26th in Madrid.
Garnica has been awarded the DHL Atlas prize for the Most Sustainable Export Award in 2016, for the sum of the company's sustainable vision, the export of a sustainable and renewable product, as well as the company's trajectory towards a more sustainable export. Clean (increasing intermodal use, less use of paper, requirement of newer and less polluting equipment, etc.). In short, this award is the result of a clear commitment to a business model based on sustainable forest management and environmental protection.
DHL, a world leader in postal and logistics services, organises these awards with the aim of recognising the work of companies that are opting for foreign trade as a way of expanding their business. This edition has also included a runner-up prize for export through E-Commerce given the huge growth of our exports through online sales.
