Awards

CHEP and Flextronics received the 2nd Central Eastern European Logistics and Supply Chain Excellence Award in 2014

 

The Events Group handed out the 2nd CEE Logistics and Supply Chain Excellence Award in 2014 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 2014 in Budapest.

The 2nd Central Eastern European Logistics and Supply Chain Excellence Award ceremony together with the cocktail reception was opened by Dr. Zoltán Doór president of the Hungarian Logistics Association, followed by Prof. Dr. Sebastian Kummer Head of the Institute of Transport and Logistics at the Vienna University of Economics and Business who announced the winners and handed out the award to CHEP and Flextronics, 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 

CHEP the winner in the service provider category applied with a new quarterly pallet. The new product allows building the promotional platforms faster, is more ergonomic to handle, has less carbon footprint, is more stable, is a more flexible display tool and allows implement RFID tracking projects in a less costly way. The new product was introduced in 2014 and is full of new ideas. The results of the audit done by RDC Environment showed that compared to the exiting quarter pallet, the new quarter pallet has a 10% lower carbon footprint. This was achieved by increasing the recycled material used in the pallet to 50% from 42%, decreasing the material used for the pallet to 1.94 kg from 2.1(8%) and increasing the interlocking capacity of the pallet which allows to stack 36 pallets instead of 30.

Flextronics the winner in the industry and retail category developed an integrated Supply Chain IT solution which enables the winner to plan and control the whole process and to realize a high degree of automation: the hard savings of $3.5 USD Million, the inventory reduction of $6 USD Million and the space reduction of 2500 m2 are really impressive. The jury deeply believes that the implemented supply chain solution can be a game changer by using standard solutions, quick implementations with wide range of configuration for specific customer needs.

Flextronics has been operating in CEE and especially in Hungary long time and in the application is was described how the Hungarian entity reacts to the really challenging changes that are going on in this industry and that it is able to resist the pressure Asian producers and Asian sides of the company are putting on the Hungarian production side. As stated “Efficiency, good quality, fast turn-around time, robust processes, unbeatable practices and excellent serviceability is needed to compete with China”  to provide unique and customized solutions that combine different industries.
