The success story of ACS Logistics goes into the next round and is confirmed for the third year in a row by a significant business award. The jury of the Hermes Business Award 2018 selected ACS Logistics as one of the finalists in the category "Logistics" and thus among the top 3 companies in Austria. The awards were presented on October 24th in a festive setting within the historical halls of the Vienna Hofburg in the presence of 700 guests.
The Hermes Business Award (Hermes.Wirtschafts.Preis) is the annual award for great entrepreneurship in Austria. Media House Kurier together with the Federal Ministry of Economics, Leitbetriebe Austria, Reed Exhibition Austria as well as the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber honors companies with the awarding of the "Business-Oscars", which bring outstanding achievements to the public and strengthens the image of Austria as a business location internationally.
Overall, companies were awarded in eight categories. The evaluation procedure takes seven indicators into account, e.g. sales growth, employee growth, profitability and internationalization. Thus, these indicators assess both entrepreneurial performance, the performance of the entire enterprise and the importance of the enterprise to the economy and society of Austria, e.g. through the inclusion of domestically created jobs or export performance, which is for the future overall wellbeing of a small economy of particular importance.
