New award recognises logistics on the edge

LinkedIn +

A new award this year will recognise the extra-ordinary achievements of logisticians working in particularly difficult conditions – disaster response, aid provision or support for military operations.

The category “Austere Environments and Contingency Logistics” would also suit parts of the energy sector where there is new exploration or a large new project being opened up in an austere environment.

 The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2014 are the gold standard of supply chain achievement and winners include some of Europe’s leading companies such as Vodafone, BASF, Danone Baby Nutrition and GlaxoSmithKline.

In the Austere Environments and Contingency Logistics category, judges will be looking for utility of existing plans; speed of response; integration of local resources; and evidence of demand fulfilment over time.

The winners of the 2014 Awards will be announced at a glittering ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Wednesday 5th November.  The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards are organised by Supply Chain Standard in association with PwC. There were a record number of entries last year – more than 120 companies took part.

What makes the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards special is the stringent process to analyse supply chain performance. Our judging team is made up of senior industry figures who bring years of experience to bear. Shortlisted companies are asked to make presentations to our judges and face detailed questioning from panel members.
