We will do our best to ensure we live up to the expectations of our customers, shareholders, and community stakeholders.”
OOCL has done well in recent years outperforming the market through both up and down cycles. OOCL attributes their success to many environmental initiatives, including the development of information technology tools such as the OOCL Carbon Calculator to enhance the transparency of carbon emission information for customers who are committed to their own environmental performance and objectives, as well as investments in the latest state-of-the-art technologies for new containerships, with advanced green features to meet current and future environmental requirements. OOCL was also the first Hong Kong-based enterprise in the international transportation and logistics industry to be included in the FTSE4Good Global Index.
“There is much to look forward in our days ahead,” said Mr. Ng. “OOCL stands ready to embrace our challenges and opportunities as we plan for growth, working with our business partners and stakeholders to ensure that we continue to deliver the high level of performance that the industry has come to expect of us.”
