GLOBAL third party logistics providers specialising in customised freight forwarding and supply chain solutions, Damco, has signed a three-year contract to serve as the Asia Pacific lead logistics service provider for Basel-based Syngenta, the world's largest agri-business.

Under the agreement, Maersk's standalone forwarder Damco will arrange and manage Syngenta's global shipments of raw materials and finished goods from factories throughout Asia, providing end-to-end visibility.

The company will also provide integrated supply chain management services, including control tower, carrier management, and land-side services for all Syngenta shipments from China, India, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Thailand and Indonesia.

"This contract is a testament to Damco's position as a leading supply chain management provider in retail, technology and chemical industries," said Damco CEO Rolf Habben Jansen.

"We have a global footprint, with more than half of our staff in emerging markets. Together with our dedicated team of supply chain development specialists, this gives us the hands-on knowledge to optimise our customers' supply chains," he said.

Said Syngenta logistics chief Roger Herzog: "We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Damco, one of the logistics industry's leading experts. This agreement, appointing them as our lead logistics service provider in Asia Pacific, is a critical element of our logistics strategy and also demonstrates our commitment to build a long-term relationship with them."
