In just under two months entry will open to the SHD Logistics Awards 2016. We expect to receive hundreds of entries which showcase operational excellence in logistics. Here are your next steps to entering.
Over 65 companies have already registered their interest in entering the Awards. Entry doesn't open until the 2nd of March, however, those 65 registered companies will receive the official entry guide first. More importantly, they already know the project they plan to enter, do you?
Last year winning projects included; House of Fraser's environmental programme, the regeneration of Peel Ports Group's Manchester Ship Canal and Kuehne & Nagel's bespoke warehouse configuration. Other winners in 2015 included; John Lewis, Fresh Logistics, Century Logistics and Widdop Bingham. To be in with a chance to win, be recognised for operational excellence and celebrated for your strengths - follow these next steps.
You have options - eleven options in fact - eleven possible categories for you to enter. We reccommend, right now, that you look at the categories listed below...
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ▪ ENVIRONMENT/SUSTAINABILITY ▪ (NEW) FUTURE SKILLS ▪ (NEW) GROWTH ▪ INNOVATION ▪ INNOVATION TECHNOLOGY ▪ NEW FACILITY ▪ OPERATIONS LARGE (500+ EMPLOYEES) ▪ OPERATIONS SME (500- EMPLOYEES) ▪ SAFETY ▪ WAREHOUSE EFFICIENCY
...then brainstorm, with colleagues, the projects you completed between the 1st of December 2014 and the 1st March 2016 (projects from before that time will be accepted where the benefits continue to be felt between these dates). Identify an appropriate project to enter into one of these categories. Actually, don't hold back, it's the new year after all and you're brimming with ideas. Think of at least three projects for three categories. Officially you can enter all eleven categories.
Register your interest in entering here. This means you will receive the official entry guide in the post by the end of February, before entry opens on the 2nd of March, and all relevant updates.
Enter (following the guidelines), obviously, before the closing date which is the 13th of May. If you have any questions call Kirsty Adams on 0207 017 7122. Entry to the Awards will open on the 2nd of March 2016. To register your interest in receiving information on how to enter please click here.
