Some gold medals are harder to get than others. Panalpina’s LogEx Gold is one of them. For LogEx Gold, you first have to earn LogEx Bronze – and then LogEx Silver.

At Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, Panalpina now operates two facilities, separated by a runway. One is dedicated exclusively to healthcare products, the other to perishables and general cargo. It's like having two bedrooms in a marriage, separated by a long corridor with lots of shiny lights on the sides. An odd idea, you may say, but it can actually make perfect sense (and save marriages).
