Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
AFN®, an award-winning logistics and supply chain company, has been awarded Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine’s "100 Great Supply Chain Projects” designation for the third time in a row. AFN’s inclusion on this year's "100" list recognizes its leadership as a solution and service provider in assisting manufacturing and retail clients in the Supply Chain function.
The 2014 Supply & Demand Chain Executive “100” list includes supply chain solution and service providers that are helping their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence. The winners have produced proven measurable gains in ROI through cost-cutting, and increased efficiency, whether in warehouse, transportation, procurement sourcing, or other category in the end-to-end supply chain.
The submissions were evaluated by the magazine's editorial staff primarily based on: ambitiousness/scope of the project (30 percent); creative application of technologies/solutions/services used (20 percent); extent of the business results/impact (40 percent); clarity of submission (10 percent).
AFN’s award was based on its just-in-time transportation solution for a leading global appliance manufacturer. AFN worked with the client to rapidly design, launch, and execute a startup large appliance product line requiring 48 hour turnaround in direct-to-consumer deliveries. By outsourcing the project to AFN, the appliance manufacturer maintained 97% on-time delivery or better and, more importantly, kept their promise to consumers. A case study on the project can be found here.
