About the Volvo Logistics award
The Volvo Logistics award is a joint initiative between the Centre of Logistics Studies (CEL) at Coppead/Federal University in Rio De Janeiro (UFRJ), Volvo Brazil, and the magazine Tecnologstica. The award - one of the most important awards in the Brazilian logistics market - is granted based on a survey conducted among the top companies in the country. It aims to identify their perception of the service levels provided by logistics service operators in Brazil. In the questionnaire, interviewees indicate in which service the chosen company excels.
About the AutoData award
The award is given by the AutoData magazine, a specialized publication dedicated to the automotive industry, widely recognized in the Brazilian editorial market. The award includes 16 categories. Initially, the AutoData editorial board chooses the best four cases published during the previous 12 months in each category, taking into account those operations that contributed most to the Brazilian automotive industry during that period. Magazine readers choose the final winners among these cases.
