Shepherd Neame has been named Team of the Year in the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2011, beating global companies including Coca Cola, DHL and Vodafone.

The Faversham brewery was praised for its enthusiasm, passion and commitment to customer service and improvements to the supply chain. Recent initiatives have helped increase capacity, reduce costs and improve product availability to meet higher demand and expectations from customers.

Tom Falcon, production and distribution director, said: “This win reflects the commitment and hard work of the whole team and the dedication they have shown in driving up product availability and customer satisfaction. We will continue to look for ways to improve our supply chain and to make it even more efficient.”

The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards were launched in 1997 as an initiative to recognise and reward organisations in Europe that demonstrate excellence in their supply chain operations. They are renowned for the rigour of the judging process.

Shepherd Neame was also recognised for supply chain improvements at the Manufacturer of the Year Awards 2010, and awarded Best Improvement Project at the Process Excellence Awards 2010.
