Electio sponsors Innovation Technology Award for 2016

Electio, a delivery management platform for retailers, is the official sponsor for the Innovation Technology category of the SHD Logistics Awards in 2016. This popular category recognises projects which have implemented technology and seen significant improvements in efficiency, accuracy, communication, productivity, visibility, accountability or profitability within a logistics operation.

On Thursday the 15th of September 2016, the SHD Logistics Awards will take place at the Vox Centre - Resorts World Birmingham - to celebrate excellence across the logistics industry. In its third year, at its new Birmingham venue, guests will celebrate outstanding projects across 11 categories including Innovation Technology, sponsored by Electio.

Lynn Parnell, logistics consultant and founder of Logistics Partners, is the judge of this category. We asked her why it's important to recognise companies which have implemented technology which has enabled an operation to significantly improve efficiency, accuracy, communication, productivity, visibility, accountability or profitability?

"Logistics companies," explains Lynn, "rely on various software and technology to optimise inventory, increase productivity, track items and improve customer service. These projects can consume huge amounts of time, resource and money; and we have all seen the headlines when these projects have brought disruption rather than the ROI expected. The right technology should bring huge benefits, and early adopters can gain a real competitive advantage. Therefore it is important that when a company experiences measureable success in this area they are given recognition and encouraged to share their experience with their peers."

Entry (free) to the SHD Logistics Awards 2016 is now open. Download the official entry guide here. Deadline for entries is the 13th of May 2016.
