Crimson & Co are pleased to announce that we were shortlisted for the prestigious Supply Chain Strategy and Design award at the 21st Supply Chain Excellence Awards ceremony last night for our work with energy provider Drax.
The 2017 Supply Chain Excellence Awards took place at the Hilton, Park Lane on the 14th November, and celebrates true supply chain excellence from around the world. Previous winners include Waterstones, Suzuki, Sky and John Lewis.
British energy firm Drax was in the middle of an unparalleled reform which is seeing it move towards a smarter, cleaner and more efficient energy industry. Drax and Crimson & Co worked together to select and implement a major new Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) system, which was implemented with a 100% fit for purpose, under the original timeframe and under budget.
The Strategy and Design award demonstrates an improvement in customer service and support through more effective management of the supply chain. With increasingly complex supply chains, businesses need to be able to assess multiple options to plot the course that maximises value for their business. Crimson & Co and Drax were recognised for their work in this field and their step towards a greener future.
