  • Excellent supply chain management solutions have their prize.

    Win it.

    Supply Chain awardS


    Superior supply chain management has long since become an important success factor for global companies. By awarding the Supply Chain Management Award for the 15th time, we honor companies with outstanding value chains – companies that have optimized their supply chains in a consistent or extraordinary manner. The award winners of previous years, which are listed separately on pages 6 to 7, demonstrate the diverse and creative ways in which companies organize their supply chains.

    In times, in which process platforms, highly efficient algorithms, and powerful big data applications are becoming more and more important also for the supply chain, we will – next to the established Supply Chain Management Award for the best solution in design and implementation – also present the Smart Solution Award for particularly innovative, future-oriented supply chain solutions.

    Every year we receive many excellent and prize-worthy applications. Choosing this year’s winners will once again be no easy task for the members of the high-caliber jury.

    The awards will be presented at the international trade conference EXCHAiNGE – The Supply Chainers Community, which will take place at Hypermotion in Frankfurt am Main on November 10 and 11, 2020. The two-day event offers not only the award winners and applicants, but all partici- pants an excellent platform for intensive exchange within the supply chain community.

    Apply by 1 July 2020.

    We are looking forward to your application and your participation at the EXCHAiNGE!

    The Supply Chain Awards are presented by the trade magazine LOGISTIK HEUTE from the Munich-based HUSS-VERLAG as well as by Strategy& and PwC.

    Who can apply?

    Applications are open to corporations from all industries. We also welcome partnership applications from companies linked by a first-class network or from companies that have developed exemplary cross-company supply chain solutions.

    What criteria are used for the evaluation?

    The jury evaluates all applications submitted on the basis of the same three dimensions:

    • Overall concept of the supply chain solution

    • Organizational anchoring and realization of changes and results

    • Innovative capability

    For the Supply Chain Management Award, the jury focuses on how far the developed solutions are anchored within the company, to what extent proven results and improvements are realized, as well as on the disruptive character for the respective industry.

    For the Smart Solution Award the jury considers the coordination of the solution and the overarching vision of the company, the proven value added for the end user, as well as the disruptive effect.

    How does the selection process work?

    The selection process consists of several stages:

    • In the first application round, companies initially introduce their supply chain solutions in writing with appro- priate documents, regardless of whether a solution qualifies for the Supply Chain Management Award or the Smart Solution Award.

    Deadline for applications is 1 July 2020.

    • The best candidates for the two prizes are selected from these applications and, in the second round, they are personally visited on site under the leadership of Strategy& and PwC supply chain experts. Candidates are given the opportunity to present their achievements in depth during a workshop.

    • The most convincing candidates from this round advance to the final round and are invited to present their concepts live to the audience and the jury at the international supply chain summit EXCHAiNGE, taking place at the HYPERMOTION in Frankfurt am Main on 10 November 2020.

    • The solutions are then intensely discussed by the members of the jury. Based on the available information and the impressions from the pitches, the independent jury of experts selects the award winners.

    • Award winners will be officially recognized at the EXCHAiNGE Award Night on 11 November 2020.

    SUPPLY CHAIN MANAgEMENT AWARD For the 15th time, the Supply Chain Management Award honors companies with outstanding value chains – companies that have optimized their supply chain in a consistent or unusual way. The award is given to solutions that help to improve competitiveness and are groundbreaking for other companies.

    SMART SOLUTION AWARD The Smart Solution Award, first presented in 2018, honors particularly innovative concepts that are still in the early stages of implementation. This prize is awarded to solutions that have the potential to fundamentally change traditional supply chains in the future.
