Commenting on the award, Flemming Andersen, Area Logistics Manager Middle East at WSS said: "We are honoured to have taken this title, and I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to the maritime logistics team in the Middle East for their splendid work throughout 2011. Next, our ambition is not only to win the Best Partner - Middle East award, but to go for the Global Partner trophy as well".

WSS currently works with more than 2,800 independent freight forwarders in more than 600 cities and ports worldwide, enabling it to act as a truly global freight forwarder, and compete confidently with much larger multi-national logistics companies.

More than 900 WCA members attended the WCA partner conference from 4-11 March. WSS representatives from the Middle East, India, Norway and Pakistan participated in the event. " This is a great place to meet our peers for networking, build new business relationships and strengthening existing ties through more than 20,000 one-to-one meetings and practical workshops", says Flemming.

Before the conference, every WCA member was invited to vote and elect the 'Best Partner' within the network; namely, the company which they consider to be most supportive in terms of business generation, professional communication and world-class service delivery. WSS has been a member of WCA, a premier global network of elite independent international freight forwarders, since 2003 and previously won the 'Best Partner' award in 2009.
