Since 1991, Modern’s Productivity Achievement Awards have honored those companies that have made outstanding operational improvements through materials handling systems and related information systems. Our editorial team selects finalists from among the monthly system reports published on Modern’s cover over the course of the previous year.
Finalists in the Manufacturing and Warehousing/Distribution categories are recognized for their ability to provide outstanding customer service, quickly respond to changing business conditions, deliver orders that meet customer requirements, and improve operations. The Innovation category recognizes companies that successfully employed a solution that defies convention. This year, in addition to achievements in productivity, throughput, or efficiency, winners were also judged on how projects inside the four walls enable or complement the broader business objectives of the company. Three finalists in each category were then passed along to a panel of expert judges.
This year’s panel of Productivity Achievement Awards judges includes: Bryan Jensen, vice president with supply chain consultancy St. Onge; Andres L. Carrano, associate professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Auburn University; Steve Simmerman, senior vice president of business development at TZA; and Jim Tompkins, founder and CEO of Tompkins International.
The winners are:
Warehousing & Distribution
*This year in the Innovation category, two companies tied for points in the judges’ voting.
