The Logistics category in the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards is one of the most popular and hard-fought.
This year we have split the logistics category into two: Logistics Strategy, and Logistics & Distribution Operations.
In the Logistics Strategy category, the judges will be looking for strategic developments in an organisation’s logistics management and practice that have a quantifiable benefit to its supply chain. Examples could include centralising distribution systems, or large scale investments in facilities as part of a strategic realignment of a logistics operation.
We are looking for entries from manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, distributors and public sector organisations. We welcome entries from third party logistics providers in partnership with a particular customer.
Logistics and Distribution Operations
In the Logistics & Distribution Operations category the judges will be looking for projects that demonstrate an improvement in the efficiency of a logistics operation. This could involve warehousing, national and international transport by air, sea rail or road – or any combination of these elements. The entry should quantify the benefit of the project to the supply chain.
Again, we are looking for entries from manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, distributors and public sector organisations. We welcome entries from third party logistics providers in partnership with a particular customer. We will also consider projects from third party logistics providers where there is a quantifiable benefit to a group of customers.

The 2010 awards broke all records – more entries than ever, more companies making it to the shortlist, and more people at the Awards Night than ever before. In fact, the evening was over-subscribed – packing the Ballroom at the Grosvenor House Hotel to capacity and prompting our move to a larger venue – the London Hilton – for the 2011 Awards.
The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards are organised by Supply Chain Standard in partnership with PRTM. They were launched in 1997 to recognise and reward organisations in Europe that demonstrate excellence in their supply chain operations.
There are two main groups of awards. The Industry Sector Awards recognise excellence in organisation and management of a complete supply chain. The Special Category Awards differ from the Industry Sector Awards in that they recognise excellence in the implementation of a specific project.
