Monday, March 4, 2019 

Capt Xu Lirong, Chairman of COSCO Shipping, was awarded the Presidentís Award at the BIMCO Conference in Shanghai for his life-long service to the shipping industry. China Merchants Energy Shipping received the award for Best Shipping Company of Greater China Area 2019.

“I believe Capt Lirong has been a key driver in developing the outstanding COSCO Shipping Group we see today,” said BIMCO President Anastasios Papagiannopoulos, who presented the award.

The BIMCO President mentioned that during his career, Lirong became one of the youngest captains in China, the first President of Shanghai Shipping Exchange as well as presiding over the merger of COSCO Group and China Shipping Group. The President’s Award is given to honour an individual or company who has made a significant contribution to shipping and the maritime industry. The award was received on behalf of Captain Lirong by Executive VP of COSCO Shipping, Yu Zenggang.

“Looking towards 2019, COSCO Shipping will build itself into a world-class shipping and logistics service supplier by joining hands with all parties and continually enhancing its development quality to better serve its clients,” Zenggang said in his speech.

China Merchants Energy Shipping received the award for Best Shipping Company of Greater China Area 2019. The key reason for the award was the company’s innovative big client strategy which has supported its strong development into a world-leading shipping service provider covering oil, dry bulk, gas and special goods transportation.

“This award is an abundant affirmation of the achievements accomplished by China Merchants Energy Shipping last year, and also a great encouragement for our future development,” said Capt Xie Chunlin, Chairman of China Merchants Energy Shipping.
