Gebrüder Weiss and SMR AMT Hungary received the 1st Central Eastern European Logistics and Supply Chain Excellence Award in 2013
The Events Group together with the European Logistics Association announced the first CEE Logistics and Supply Chain Excellence Award in 2013 to recognise and promote outstanding logistics and supply chain management methods and to encourage professionals to constantly raise standards and come up with innovative and flexible solutions, contributing to the development of the rapidly growing CEE region. The award was handed out at the Award ceremony at TRANSLOG Connect Congress 2013 in Budapest.
The Central Eastern European Logistics and Supply Chain Excellence Award Ceremony together with the cocktail reception was opened by Alfonz Antoni, Vice-President of the European Logistics Association, followed by Prof. Dr. Sebastian Kummer who announced the winners and handed out the award to Gebrüder Weiss and SMR AMT Hungary, emphasising that these tried methods will encourage professionals to constantly raise standards and come up with innovative and flexible solutions, to further contribute to the development of the rapidly growing CEE region. Applications were evaluated by an independent jury, by their level of innovation, transferability, sustainability, cost-effectiveness and customer value-contribution. The projects had to be accomplished in any of the countries in the CEE region in one of the two categories: manufacturers and retailers firstly, and service providers with a customer related project secondly.
Prof. Dr. Sebastian Kummer - Vienna University of Economics
Gebrüder Weiss, leading Logistics Service Provider, winner in the service industry applied with its Control Tower Concept, which was established for Hilti CEE distribution, and can be implemented for other key accounts. The project is remarkable because the key success factor of any logistics system is information, so the aim of this project was to provide better information for the service provider but also the customer. The solution offers an impressive 98.92% delivery performance and 99.68% quality performance level on average, lifting an existing successful partnership to the next level. It also helped the partners to solve 90% of occurring problems in time instead of the previous 60%, also tripling the initiated process improvements per year.
