The China Supply Chain Council, a leading professional organization in China, announced the winners of its second annual China Supply Chain & Logistics Awards. The awards recognize best practices and superior achievements enabled by supply chain management in China.

More than 130 supply chain and logistics professionals gathered at an awards ceremony in Shanghai where the five tope winners were presented with their awards.

Electrolux Group received the top Supply Chain Operational Excellence Award for its global logistics initiative program, driven by the China team, that resulted in a 20-percent logistics cost reduction, successful VMI operations between China and overseas factories, and the rationalization of the number of logistics service providers worldwide.

All award nominations are made or initiated directly by “shippers” - manufacturers and retailers operating in China - and the selection process is done in a sponsorship-free environment. Other winners included:

  • Manhattan Associates received the Best Supply Chain IT Solution award for its recent Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) implementation at DirectGroup China, which is part of Bertelsmann Group.
  • Gerold Simbuerger, currently Deputy Head of Global Supply Chain Management of BenQ Mobile Shanghai, won The Award for China's Supply Chain Executive of the Year for his years of leadership and supply chain achievements at both Siemens and BenQ Mobile.
  • Keppel Logistics won the award for the Best 3PL Supply Chain Provider for its 11 years working relationship with Osram China Lighting, in particular in the warehousing, inventory management, domestic and regional distribution, and value-added services in China.
  • Accenture China won the award for Best Supply Chain Consulting Partner in China for the second year in a row for its successful implementation of Cadbury Schweppes’ International Procurement Operations (IPOs) in China.
The awards ceremony took place during the CHaINA Summit 2006, China’s largest supply chain event that included over 50 multiple concurrent conferences, workshops and an exhibition floor. The event was attended by 300 delegates.
