The Dutch Shippers' Council (EVO) and Exports Association (Fenedex) has elected K Line as their best performing deep sea container carrier of 2014. The award was presented by EVO's Chairman Chris Bruggink to Daisuke Arai, European CEO of K Line, at a recent ceremony at the Dutch National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam. The annual award is granted by EVO to the deep sea container carrier whose service level is perceived to be the best by its members. The clients evaluate carriers on topics such as reliability, communication, punctuality, price and routes; the Japanese carrier had the best score on 13 of the 21 criteria.

Genoa-based FuoriMuro Servizi Portuali e Ferroviari Srl has won the "Rail Freight Operator of the Year" award for 2014 at the second annual European Rail Congress held recently in London.

The award was presented to FuoriMuro's President Guido Porta by Julia Lamb, the Secretary-General of the European Rail Freight Association, and by "rail buff" and former British Government Minister, Michael Portillo.
