Logistics Achiever Awards Rules

The Logistics Achiever Awards Rules follow world-class trends

The competition rules are:

  • Competing companies are required to submit an official competition entry, as called for in this document.
     
  • Companies can submit as many entries as they see fit, provided that each entry is independent of one another.
     
  • If the company wishing to enter is a supplier of a product or service, the ideal is to have it as a joint entry by the supplier and one of their clients, or alternatively, an entry by the user of the product or service to allow verification of results. The exact nature of the entry relationship must be stated at the outset. The Judges may disqualify at their discretion entries with undue, improper, or untested promotional claims.
     
  • The Judging Panel includes nominated representatives of the various professional institutes, vocational societies and trade or industry associations involved in logistics and supply chain management in Southern Africa. Currently, these bodies consist of:
     
    1. Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (South Africa) (CILTSA)
    2. Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS)
    3. SA Roundtable of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP)
    4. Road Freight Association (RFA)
    5. SA Association of Freight Forwarders (SAAFF)
    6. SA Express Parcel Association (SAEPA)
    7. SA Institute of Industrial Engineers (SAIIE)
    8. Association for Operations Management of Southern Africa (SAPICS)
    9. Operations Research Society of SA (ORSSA)

The organisers reserve the right to invite other representative organisations onto the Judging Panel, or industry representatives as and when they see fit.

  • Companies are required to be interviewed by nominated Judges, and make available to them, the site(s) in question, and information/records substantiating the declared improvement in logistics and supply chain management performance. All Judges will sign a confidentiality agreement with Logistics News, and can, if required, sign a confidentiality agreement with the individual entering companies, provided such documents are available for signing at the time of their scheduled visit. All potential conflicts of interest will be avoided wherever they are known to exist.

    Due to the tight schedule of the judging process, companies are requested to make every effort to accommodate judge visits as soon as possible after they contact you.
     
  • Short listed entrants will be required to attend the black tie Achiever Awards function to be held in October for which there will be a charge of approximately R12 000.00 for a table of 10 guests.
     
  • The entries could be categorised at the discretion of the Judges to allow meaningful comparison with other entries in the same economic sector, company size or focus area.

    Winning projects will be presented in a special Case Study Annual (subject to editorial review by the entering company).

  • The selection of the winners will be at the sole discretion of the Judges, and their decision will be final. No correspondence will be entered into.

Please ensure that you have read, understood and accepted the competition rules. Appropriate space is allowed for your signature of confirmation on the Entry Form
