Awards Brief
Into its fourteenth year, the Supply Chain Asia (SCA) Awards continues to keep its prestige and value through recognition of
individuals as well as corporation contributions to the growth and development of the industry.

This year’s awards celebration is held together with its annual Forum and expected to draw record attendance to the event.

Individual Recognition Awards
SCA offers a platform to recognise individual contributions to their companies and communities. Individuals are nominated by
industry professionals, community members and SCA Awards committee members.

Corporate Awards
SCA offers two core awards for corporations involved in the provision of supply chain and logistics services:

   transformative projects. The nominations of recognition awards are selected from industry professionals and community members
   of SCA. Awardees are selected by SCA editorial team as well as its Awards Committee members.

•   Competing Awards.
		 To qualify for these awards, companies will need to pass through a nomination and selection process, acceptance of the
   nomination and finally voted to win by a Panel of Judges as well as SCA Awards Committee members. The nomination and

President, Asia Pacific, UPS

As the President of UPS Asia Pacific region, Ross leads over 14,000 employees and oversees all UPS operations in the nearly 40
countries and territories, including UPS’s package delivery, freight forwarding, contract logistics and distribution services. Ross’s
vision for UPS’s Asia Pacific region is based on a continued commitment to growth through providing greater access to UPS,
innovation that creates value for the customer and a firm belief that empowering the right talent with the right tools will cement
UPS’s position as a global logistics leader.

Like many senior UPS leadership, Ross began his career at UPS while completing his undergraduate studies as a part-time
employee. Since joining the company in 1984, Ross counts a number of ground-breaking ‘firsts’ at UPS, which have contributed
to successful product, portfolio and geographic expansions throughout the business. In 1996, he headed UPS’s first ever
e-commerce function. This was followed by post-acquisition integration and relationship development for Mail Boxes Etc. in the
UPS Europe Region, which paved the way for the company’s successful and growing retail strategy in Europe, and integrating
UPS’s supply chain solutions under one marketing portfolio, positioning UPS as one of the first end-to-end global logistics

In his prior role as Vice President for Corporate Strategy, Ross led the creation and launch of a new strategic planning process,
together with the development of a comprehensive global vision and strategy communications platform. A growth champion, Ross
has leveraged his experience with global merger and acquisition projects to oversee key initiatives, including significant strategic
investments, and established relationships with leading transportation companies in the region. In 2018, UPS strengthened reach
and connectivity for Asian businesses; rolling out transit time improvements impacting over 500 trade lanes, and added seven
new Boeing 747-8s to service intercontinental trade routes.

Ross has contributed to discussions around changing trade in Asia and the impact of technology on businesses at regional
events, including the 2017 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) CEO Summit and The Economist Innovation Summit 2018.
He has a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology from Eastern Illinois University, and earned an MBA in International Business
from Emory University. When Ross is not working on his next first, he is most likely to be found spending time with his wife, son
and daughter.

John Huang
                                                                                        Honorary Fellow
Executive Chairman, CTW Logistics

John Huang, chairman of CTW Logistics Corporation, is integral in strategy formulation for the company and shaping of internal
culture and external relations of the company. Under his leadership, CTW becomes a leading 3PL service provider in Taiwan.

CTW was founded in 1974 as a container trucking company. In the historical perspective, it was the era between two times of
Energy Crisis (1973-1974 and 1982-1983) in which Taiwan was in its economic boom (with GDP growth of 14 per cent), and this
provided an excellent opportunity for CTW’s growth. In the 2000s, CTW expanded its business focus from transportation into
warehousing and total logistics solutions. By adopting world-leading WMS and German Dematic AS/RS, and also adopting
self-developed TMS, Dock Door Management System (CTW’s transportation partners make reservations for dock door usages),
CTW seized the Taiwan economic growth momentum and semiconductors/ electronics industry development to build up its
market share and gradually thrived to become a leading third-party logistics service provider in Taiwan. CTW especially dedicates
to logistics service for semiconductor-related parts, special gases, chemicals, dangerous goods, electronics devices, precise
machines, and fashion goods.

Facing the US-China trade war and severe global competition, CTW keeps the competitive advantage by adopting robotics
automation system, big data application and IoT technology, as well as innovative services, such as the regional Control Tower,
and the Logi-Intelligence platform to track and trace cross-country shipments. The change in pace is faster than ever and CTW
needs to act responsively and effectively. This requires different ways of thinking and doing things. John Huang is leading CTW
across this transformation.

CTW welcomes its 45th anniversary in 2019, and looks ahead to the next 15 years. To achieve this long-term vision, CTW treasures
employees, and expects them to carry on the sustainability of the company. CTW regularly organises the internal and external
trainings to strengthen the employees’ logistics knowledge and skills, as well as to increase their awareness of safety, security
risks and the changes in regulation compliance. CTW management team consciously cultivates the friendly working environment
and encourage employees to engage in decision-making to retain the outstanding performers.

John Huang is also passionate about the public welfare. CTW’s educational foundation, founded in 1998, will keep its mission
to devote in public welfare for the local neighbouring communities and Taiwanese society. Echoing CTW’s business philosophy:
Repay the society; Repay the earth. Care for humanity; Care for peace, CTW’s educational foundation acts to express the
appreciation for the homeland.
