This year's judging panel of leading experts from the fields of regulation, financial, investment, accounting, legal and academic praised Kerry Logistics for its "world-class aspiration of achieving good corporate governance". They also highlighted how Kerry Logistics' diligent and disciplined board "reflected the company's determination to have top calibre people with the right professional background leading its business".
