Overall winner in the 2018 Supply Chain Excellence Awards: Superdry with Clipper Logistics

Superdry fought off strong competition from some global supply chain leaders. Among the highest scoring entries were Heineken, Keysight Technologies, Ocado and Turkcell. But ultimately, the contenders came down to John Lewis with Knapp, Sky with Unipart, and Superdry with Clipper Logistics.

Innovation was a key theme of the Awards this year and highlighted the dramatic developments in both supply chain thinking and technology that is changing the market.

The Retail Innovation Award went to Ocado with its partner PW Gates, while Shell took the Technology Innovation Award.

The Award for Robotics Innovation was taken by China Post with Beijing Geekplus Technology.
And the Award for Supply Chain Innovation, sponsored by flex, went to HP.

The 22nd Supply Chain Excellence Awards took place at the Park Lane Hilton in London on 6th November.

Comedian Marcus Brigstocke hosted the evening. Brigstocke launched The Late Edition, the late night BBC4 answer to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He has hosted and appeared as a panellist on Have I Got News For You.

Awards sponsors include Clipper Logistics, flex, Unipart and BluJay Solutions.
