Seeking out supply chains of meritIt is becoming increasingly clear that leading companies are developing and implementing supply chain strategies that deliver competitive advantage. As globalisation accelerates, structural shifts in supply chains are required to remain competitive in traditional markets or to successfully enter new markets. This places enormous pressure on supply chain structures, processes and systems to deliver what the customer wants – when they want it – at a competitive cost. PRTM is delighted to partner with Supply Chain Standard for a third year on the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards. We continue to seek out and recognise organisations that have transformed their supply chains to deliver competitive advantage. So what does it take to be an award winner? Do you think you have an outstanding supply chain but no way of comparing against other leading companies in your sector or beyond? Finding answers to these questions couldn”t be simpler. Registering on the Awards website will give you access to a short number of qualitative questions designed to start the process of revealing why your organisation might be a winner. All submissions will be kept strictly confidential so click on the website to begin the process and the best of luck.” Gordon Colborn, Director, PRTM
