ACS named the winners of the Freight Transport Best Practice Award, at the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport Awards for Excellence 2015

We are very pleased to have been named, in partnership with leading supermarket Sainsbury’s, as the winners of the Freight Transport Best Practice Award, at the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport Awards for Excellence 2015.

Our entry, which described  our stockless, direct to store, origin pick programme designed for Sainsbury’s was deemed to “..demonstrate how upstream logistics techniques can deliver reduced cost, improved service and extend the capability and longevity of an established retail supply chain in a sustainable and repeatable way..”

Covering almost 15,000 case picks across China & The Indian Sub Continent this was our most complex origin pick project for Sainsbury’s to date.

The CILT’s Annual Awards for Excellence  are designed to recognise achievement and to encourage the highest standards and a professional approach to the practice of logistics and transport.

There were a total of 20 categories presented on the night by the Institute’s Royal Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, accompanied by the Institute’s President, Beverley Bell FCILT.

Clyde Buntrock, Executive Director, Business Development & Marketing said “ We are extremely proud that Sainsbury’s commitment to enhancing its international supply chain, facilitated by ACS, has been recognised by an organisation as important as the CILT”
