Indo-American Chamber of Commerce honours C. H. Robinson with Corporate Leader of the Year award


The Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC) recently selected C. H. Robinson, one of the world’s largest third-party logistics (3PL) providers, for its Corporate Leader of the Year award, an honour specifically for US-based companies in India. C.H. Robinson received the award for its outstanding contribution to all spheres of the corporate ecosystem: business, industry and the overall community. This is the first year C.H. Robinson has been recognised with this honour.


IACC presented the award to C. H. Robinson at the 13th Indo-American Corporate Excellence Awards on July 27, 2017, in Mumbai, India. Approximately 300 guests attended the event.


"This award is about recognising the relationships we have with customers and the impact we’re making on their businesses," says Mr T. J. Srinivasaraj, Managing Director of South Asia at C. H. Robinson. "We often hear that navigating logistics in India can be challenging. Our local expertise is a differentiator and eases that process for our customers."


C. H. Robinson’s technology solution was key to winning this award. With Navisphere®, its single instance global technology platform, companies can track and trace their shipments in real time, gaining true global supply chain visibility. C. H. Robinson is one of the only 3PLs offering global technology in the region.


"A major lack of transparency is a continuous challenge in international business," says Mr Shaun Srivastava, Route Development Manager at C. H. Robinson. "But at C. H. Robinson, we’re the eyes and ears on the ground for our customers. We can show them what’s happening with their shipments in real time using Navisphere®, ultimately making their job easier."


C. H. Robinson’s South Asia headquarters is located in Chennai, India. The company has had a presence in South Asia since 2006 and currently occupies 20 offices with more than 420 employees. It is a top non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) from Asia to the US.


Globally, C. H. Robinson provides a broad portfolio of logistics services and innovative supply chain solutions, fresh produce sourcing and managed services for more than 113,000 customers and 71,000 contract carriers through its integrated network of 280 offices and more than 14,000 employees. Its offerings include truckload services, ocean or air shipping, supply chain consulting, among others, highlighted a release.


The company’s global headquarters is in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, US.
