Following our recent nomination for the
Tech Awards, we are very proud to announce that Reply and M&S have been shortlisted for another prestigious competition:
The Logistics Awards 2018.
Reply and M&S were honoured in two categories: Technology Innovation (Large) and
Operations (Large) for the launch of M&S’ new cloud-based Supplier Portal to support the movement and visibility of stock programme.
The Logistics Awards is one of the UK’s premier awards events, and an annual celebration of excellence in the logistics and supply chain sectors. In association with SHD Logistics magazine, the awards recognise the most impressive achievements throughout the industry over the past 12 months.
Logistics Reply, in conjunction with M&S, created an online portal which allows M&S food suppliers to have access to a system that helps manage the accurate despatch of stock into the M&S network. The Supplier Portal is part of a programme which delivers visibility for M&S of all incoming products as soon as they are despatched from each Supplier location.
M&S Supplier Portal is designed for ease-of-use, quick setup and to eliminate manual data input – with total training/go-live in just one day.
Syd Reid, Director of Food Supply Chain and Logistics at M&S, said
“To be a finalist in not one, but two categories of The Logistics Awards is a testament to the collective teamwork of all of the M&S Team, Reply, and our Suppliers.”
”We are thrilled to be nominated for The Logistics Awards,” said Francesco Soncini Sessa, Partner at Logistics Reply.
”Most of all, we are delighted that M&S and its Suppliers are enjoying such a positive result from the M&S Portal project.”
The winners of The Logistics Awards will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday 20 September at The Swan, Shakepeare’s Globe, London.
