27 Regiment RLC this month were awarded Team of the Year at the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards.

The 18th European Supply Chain Excellence Awards, in association with PricewaterhouseCoopers, took place this month in London, the awards celebrated the achievements of end-user Supply Chain practitioners. There were 220 initial entrees in the awards, including companies such as British Airways with DHL, Vodafone and Starbucks with Gist, which were whittled down to 114 finalists.

The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards are renowned for their rigorous judging process, and entrants had to be assessed by a panel of judges– based on a first stage of written presentations and a second stage of organisation presentations.

27 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps beat tough competition to win the award for Team of the Year based on the back of the success of the reverse supply chain Op HERRICK 19, where 27 Regiment RLC commanded the Theatre Logistic Group.

RLC Corps Colonel, Colonel Corrie said “This award marks a tremendous achievement not only for 27 Regiment but the Corps as a whole. This award demonstrates the RLC’s excellence in the field of logistics and the outstanding commitment and expertise of our Soldiers and Officers”.

The award highlights the importance of the role played by the Royal Logistic Corps in sustaining the army in austere conditions wherever it is based around the world, and more importantly returning them back to the UK.
