Leading edge developments and innovation should be on show to impress one judge for the Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2020.

Independent consultant Alistair Charatan led the call for supply chain practitioners to celebrate their excellence, as the entry deadline for the 2020 Awards was extended to 31 July.

Charatan is currently an independent consultant, focusing on supply chain and operations. He has over 25 years’ experience in retail, business-to-business distribution, e-commerce and management consultancy, at companies including Woolworths, Travis Perkins, Jewson, The Body Shop and PWC.

Why did you choose to be a judge at the Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2020?

Charatan: “I have found in previous years that I learn from the cases presented, and it is also good to support a great industry initiative, that recognises excellence.”

 What does supply chain excellence mean to you?

Charatan: “Either best practice, in terms of innovation and leading edge processes and/or technology, or it can be well-proven techniques brought together in a way that delivers efficiency and service, by improving a supply chain.”

What are you looking for in a winning entry?

Charatan: “Either leading edge developments and/or innovation; or an initiative or programme that has been successfully implemented.”
