Ekol Logistics Spain recognised in Europe’s largest business competition
Ekol Logistics has been named The National Champion for Spain in the European Business Awards (EBA); Europe’s largest business competition set up to celebrate business excellence and best practices in the European business community.
The Awards, now in its 10th year, is supported by business leaders, academics and political representatives from across Europe, and this year engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries.
Ekol Spain has been chosen after the first phase of judging by an independent panel. They were evaluated on the core EBA values of innovation, ethics and success and will now go through to the second stage of the competition, which includes a video and a public vote.
Ekol is a logistics company specialised in intermodal transport. Ekol can offer: transportation, warehouse management, foreign trade and supply chain management solutions. The company has more than 25 years’ experience but the Spanish company opened only 2 years ago.
"We are very proud of the fact we have been named the National Champion in the European Business Awards. We are a young company in Spain but it motives us to work even harder, as it proves the strategy we realize is the proper one. Ekol Spain developed logistics services and became one of the leaders offering daily solutions to many countries. At the moment we have 3 branches in our country, in Barcelona, Madrid, and in Zaragoza. More investments in new branches are in the pipeline. Already in 2016 we will open new branches in Spain. Obviously, Spanish companies can do good import and export business only if they have good transport solutions. Therefore, the fact that logistics operators such as Ekol are improving their services and infrastructure is positive news for our economy." – said Alfio Centocinque, Country Manager and Executive Board Member, Ekol Spain.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: "Congratulations to Ekol Spain who have been selected to represent their country as one of the National Champions. They are central to the success of Europe's strong business community, and have shown the core principles we look for: innovation, ethics and success."
The next round requires the National Champions to make a video presentation telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The Awards' independent judges will award the best of this group the 'Ruban d’Honneur' status and the selected companies will then go on to the Gala Final in 2017.
