This year has seen supply chains come under even more intense scrutiny as companies look not only for savings but also for ways to build competitive advantage in more difficult markets. In this environment, The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards have become more important than ever.
We have already had a bumper entry for this year’s awards and we know that there are more working on their entries so we have extended the deadline to Friday 3rd July.
So, if you have not already started the entry process, you now have time – but you will have to move quickly to meet the new deadline.
The entry and judging process is designed to benchmark and reward organisations in Europe that demonstrate measurable superiority within their supply chain operations. This rigorous process gives the Awards an unassailable prestige within the industry that attracts entries from Europe’s leading corporations. But we are not just looking for large organisations – smaller companies are just as capable of displaying supply chain virtuosity.
The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2009 are organised by Supply Chain Standard in partnership with consultancy PRTM. The awards will be presented at a glittering dinner on 12th November at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel before an audience of more than 450 industry leaders.
