Pune, India-  Volkswagen India selected APM Terminals Mumbai Container Freight Station (CFS) to receive its annual “Supplier Appreciation Award” for excellent performance during 2011-2012. The award is in recognition of the Inland Services operation’s help in achieving Volkswagen’s targeted logistics chain performance levels forthe 110,000 vehicle capacity Chakan auto manufacturing facility near Pune, Maharashtra. 
The award presentation was made by Volkswagen India’s Deputy General Manager of Logistics Disposition Andreas Lehmann as part of the annual Volkswagen recognition ceremonies. Receiving the award on behalf of APM Terminals Mumbai CFS was APM

The Chakan facility covers a total of 2.3 million square meters (575 acres), and is located approximately 120 km (75 miles) from Mumbai, India’s primary container port. The Volkswagen plant is the only production facility operated by a German automaker in India which features an integrated production process from press shop through body shop and paint line through to the vehicle’s final  assembly. The €580 million ($748 million USD) manufacturing facility is the largest investment by a German company in India. The Volkswagen Group, which produces the Volkswagen, Skoda, Audi and Porsche nameplates, is the world’s third-largest auto company. 
The award was given by Volkswagen India in recognition of APM Terminals Mumbai CFS’ innovative logistics solutions, reduced transportation and handling costs, improved safety and security and the effective execution of Just-in-Time inventory management.
