What are the Supply Chain Excellence Awards about?

Now in its 28th year, The Supply Chain Excellence Awards were launched as an initiative to recognize and reward organizations around the world that demonstrate excellence in their supply chain operations.

The Supply Chain Excellence Awards have been held in London for the last 28 years and are now coming to the USA!

Supply Chain Excellence Awards USA will be held in Miami on October 21st, 2024.

These Awards are renowned for the rigor of the judging process which also provides valuable feedback for entrants.

The key objectives of the Awards are:

•  To recognize outstanding achievement in supply chain management
•  To reward those companies who have attained the highest standards
•  To highlight the importance of, and the opportunities offered by, excellent supply chain management
•  To celebrate, as an industry, the successes of the past year
•  To provide a unique networking opportunity for the world’s senior supply chain professionals

Who can enter the Awards?

The Supply Chain Excellence Awards are designed to celebrate the achievements of businesses in developing and helping run their own or another business's supply chain.

We welcome submissions from both end-user organizations and solutions providers, e.g. 3PLs and consultancies. However, solution provider entries should focus on a partnership with an end-user practitioner client.

What are the entry criteria?

To help entrants, we have outlined the following:

  •     Quality of contribution
  •     Significance of innovation to the industry
  •     Extent to which the solution creates competitive advantage for the company
  •     Depth of application
  •     Evidence of business benefits
  •     Collaboration with others

Criteria for the second stage presentation (if successful in reaching this stage):

  •     Enthusiasm and passion
  •     Commitment of senior management
  •     Communication with the wider organization
  •     Scope/magnitude of change/achievement
  •     Evidence of results

When is the entry deadline?

The entry deadline is on July 19th

Is entering the Awards free?

Yes, there is no cost to enter.

Can I enter more than one category?

Yes, but please do keep each entry as unique as possible.

Does it matter where our organisation is based?

Companies based in the Americas can enter any projects they like, regardless of where the project is based.

Companies not based in the Americas can still enter, however the project must be based in the Americas.

How do I enter?

Entries Open on April 29th 

Once you have registered yourself on the platform, you will be able to prepare your entry online. With this system you do not have to complete your entry in one sitting. You can work on it over time, saving your progress as you go. This makes it much easier to get your entry together. The new platform also makes it easier for us to (for example) limit the number of words submitted in entries, thus making the entry process a more level playing field. This contributes to the fairness and rigor of the Awards.

Is the information we submit safe?

All entries are strictly confidential. No details of any kind will be shared to anyone other than our judges.

Our judges all have to agree to a confidentiality agreement before they see any entries. Judges will not divulge or utilize confidential information gained from judging submissions, or discuss with any other party, any details of any entry that they judge.

When will the shortlist be announced?

The shortlist is usually announced in late July.

How are the Awards decided?

If shortlisted, you will be asked to present (online) to a judging panel. You will not be able to choose your day or time, so please make sure your presenter is available, and that you have an alternate. It you’ve entered as a joint entry, all parties should be present in the interview, or your winning chances will be significantly lower.

How do I book a table?

Our booking form will go live on this website before the shortlist is announced.

If you'd like to book before then, contact

Please note: we do not include drinks in the table prices, as the majority of our audience prefer to order drinks to suit their guests. Drinks menus and order forms will be provided in advance to all table bookers.
