Tradeteam has toasted its fifth industry award in two years after picking up the Best On-trade Supply Chain Company at this year’s Drinks Business Awards.
The honour is the first to be given by Europe’s leading drinks trade publication and was created specifically to reward companies who demonstrate supply chain excellence whilst delivering to pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants throughout the UK.
Gavin Murdoch Tradeteam’s Managing Director collected the gong from Jeremy Beadles, CEO of the Wine & Spirit Trade Association at the International Wine Fair (IWF) held at London’s Excel arena on May 18th, 2011.
"We are thrilled to be named the best in the business by such a prestigious publication," he said.
A spokesperson from Drinks Business said: "Tradeteam was awarded this special accolade as a result of its efficiency and professionalism in supply chain management.
"The judges felt the company clearly understood the needs of the on-trade sector, providing a wide range of services that meet those needs – a worthy winner."
Gavin Murdoch added: "At Tradeteam we never stand still and continually pursue a proactive improvement strategy within all areas of the business. It’s great to be able to demonstrate that this supply chain approach benefits our on-trade customers day in day out and for the drinks industry to acknowledge us as a leading supplier as a result.
"Tradeteam delivers to more than 30,000 on-trade outlets each week, so it’s incredibly important we get it right and that we continue to develop tailored services for brewers, drinks suppliers, pub companies and retailers to ensure they get the best possible drinks logistics solution every time.
"This award is a welcomed nod to the fact that we are doing a good job and that our added value services such like our stock replenishment solution make a real difference in the marketplace."
