Lloyd’s Loading List has over 150 years of experience and is the leading intelligence resource for the shipping world. Their Global Freight Awards are some of the industry’s longest-standing and most prestigious, with many of the largest ocean carriers, logistics providers and freight forwarders competing for accolades across 14 categories.
ACS submitted an entry in the “Supply Chain Partnership” category, outlining an innovative project we designed with Sainsbury’s to ensure 100% availability for their January Sale items, in-store on Boxing Day. Over half a million cases of product from more than 40 global origins, were picked for direct store delivery in a two week window before stores closed on Christmas Eve.
We were delighted to learn yesterday that ACS has been short-listed in this category. The winner will be announced on 19th November at the awards dinner in London
This is our third award short-listing in 2014, following on the heels of those previously announced: the Retail Week Supply Chain Awards and the Supply Chain Excellence Awards.
