A14 Supply Chain Award
Recently, 114 passionate and focused leaders from supply chain partners involved in delivering the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon road improvement scheme, all came together to celebrate the IDT’s ‘Leadership Forum and Annual Supply Chain Values Awards 2017’.
On the night, those in attendance reflected on the great success attributed in 2017 and looked ahead to 2018, where attentions were very much focussed on the continuation of achieving world-class performance as a team.
Key speakers at the occasion, Andrew Spencer – ‘Procurement and Supply Chain Director’ and Ben Cross – ‘Supply Chain Manager’ both simultaneously conveyed a message ‘that we are only as good as our supply chain’, a theme that was concurrent throughout, when IDMT and IDB representatives also spoke out.
