The awards have been running
for almost 30 years and reward achievements in the freight forwarding industry
with some 500 people in attendance on the day itself. The event this year was hosted by double
Olympic champion Col. Dame Kelly Holmes (MBE mil) who delivered an incredibly
inspiring and motivational speech.
CML was shortlisted in the
‘Supply Chain Management’ category which recognises industry leading companies
that have provided an innovative solution for their customers and has created a
more efficient and cost effective management of the supply chain. CML’s award submission focused on its 60,000
sq ft ecommerce pick tower that was built within an eight week period to support
new retail contract wins in time for peak trading season and with no disruption
to the customers’ businesses.
Kerry Delaney, CML’s
Commercial Director, commented on being shortlisted for the ‘Supply Chain
Management’ award, “We are delighted to have received a finalist certificate
for these prestigious awards which recognise industry leaders in supply chain
management and freight forwarding.”
