Take wins in the Supply Chain Strategy and Design and Innovation categories

ANN ARBOR, Mich. and TOWCESTER, UK. (November 15, 2016). LLamasoft, a global leader in supply chain design software and solutions and Argos, the UK’s leading digital retailer are, are delighted to win the 2016 European Supply Chain Excellence Awards, in the categories of Supply Chain Strategy and Design and Innovation.

Judged by a panel of industry experts from leading businesses, the awards recognise the most outstanding examples of supply chain best practice.

The joint entry was based on a project that Argos undertook that focused on its customer delivery goals. Utilising LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru, Argos implemented a new hub-and-spoke operating model, which the company has leveraged to create a ‘FastTrack’ delivery model to deliver to 95 percent of U.K. households within the same day.

The judges commended the joint entry as “a really compelling submission from two partnering organisations who delivered a quantifiable return on their investment as well as achieving outstanding service for their customers.”

“Having worked with LLamasoft in the past on various projects, we knew they were the right supply chain design technology partner to help us build our own design team and reach our goals,” said  Andy Brown, Central Operations Director at Argos. “Furthermore we really appreciate this external recognition awarded by a panel of supply chain industry experts. This validates the work of the whole team, who together deserve this accolade.”

“I am very proud of this achievement,” said Executive Director of Customer Success for LLamasoft EMEA, Phil Gibbs.  “The award is testament to the close working relationship we have with the Argos team. We’re looking forward to continuing to share the value that LLamasoft is providing to Argos and to retailers worldwide.”
