The winners of the 2012 Awards will be announced on Tuesday 6th November, at a glittering gala dinner at the Hilton Hotel in London’s Park Lane.

Last year BASF joined the illustrious list of companies that have won Europe’s most prestigious supply chain award including: Telefonica, Dell, Sainsbury’s, Vodafone, Primark, Coca-Cola, Marks & Spencer, Cisco Systems and GlaxoSmithKline.

“It’s a great honour,” said: Arno Bingemann, vice president planning processes at BASF, who collected the Award at The Park Lane Hilton.

“I’m a representative of 800 people who have worked very hard for three years to change the company and globally harmonise processes. It makes us proud that the project was so successful and to be awarded for our hard work,” he said.

The Awards are unique in the depth of analysis involved in the judging process, which in turn makes them uniquely worth winning. Companies entering the Awards are asked to provide a considerable detail in their entry – and this is used in the first stage of judging when the shortlist is decided.

The shortlisted companies will now go through to the interview stage where they will be asked to make presentations to our judging panels who will also be asking some tough questions.

The judges look for five common characteristics of high performing supply chains – the five core disciplines:

1. Does your supply chain help to deliver competitive advantage to your company – or is it a cost of doing business?

2. Are your processes and systems streamlined and integrated across the end-to-end supply chain – or are they complex and fragmented?

3. Is the supply chain organisation structured and staffed for success – or is it an admin function staffed with the dead weights?

4. Have you built a collaborative operating model with a clear understanding of your core competencies – or are you a jack of all trades and a master of none?

5. Have you a clear understanding of how to measure success and is the organisation incentivised to deliver it – or do you measure everything and do nothing with it?
