Global Logistics & Supply Chain Strategies magazine’s list of 100 Great Supply Chain Partners for 2008 is the result of a six-month poll in which senior level logistics and supply chain professionals are asked to nominate organisations whose technology, logistics, transportation or consulting solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance.
The purpose of the list is to recognise those organisations that have so impressed the readers that they deserve to be singled out and to be held up as examples for others in the industry as well as an opportunity to thank those providers who have helped the readers achieve better results.
GL&SCS received more than 1,400 nominations from small and large companies representing scores of different industries on five continents.
More than 400 vendors of every conceivable type of supply chain activity were nominated — from very specialised technologies, to third party logistics providers, to highly specialized transportation services.
The 100 companies that received the most qualified nominations were selected for this year’s list.
The listing appears in the July issue of GL&SCS in alphabetical order, without ranking.
Several nominations were accompanied with commentaries, but regardless of what type of vendor a reader nominated, there were clear themes within the commentaries that accompanied most of the ballots.
Similar to that of previous reports, the most common 10 qualities named in selecting this year’s winners were: reliability; repeatable excellence; value and cost savings; expertise and knowledge base; problem-solving ability; continuous improvement; support; positive culture; global capabilities; and strong management.
“It is a privilege to be named a ‘100 Great Supply Chain Partner’ by the readers of GL&SCS for the second year running,” says William Wascher, President and CEO of SEKO.
“We see them as valued customers and supply chain professionals within the highly technological supply chain industry.”
“SEKO’s innovative IT solutions and dedication to operational efficiencies within our global network of offices provides our customers with the effective supply chain results they require.”
“This nomination is a testament to our commitment to quality, excellence and meeting the supply chain needs of our customers worldwide.”
