SCMAP’s Salute to Supply Chain Excellence (SSCE) Awards winners were announced last September 13, during Day 2 of its Annual Conference and Exhibit held at the EDSA Shangri-la Plaza Hotel in Mandaluyong City. The SSCE Awards aims to identify and reward outstanding performance among SCMAP companies and recognize the importance and opportunities offered by excellent supply chain management.


Philips Electronics & Lighting Inc. bagged the top award under the Supply Chain Operational Excellence category. The award is intended to recognize a lasting and high-value innovation in supply chain operations resulting in efficient, sustainable and cost effective strategies in its operations, processes and services.


The Red Systems Company Inc. was a finalist for its two entries — Transportation Management: Improvement of Hauler Trippage and Transportation Deadhead, and Market Execution Partner Train Schedule Project.

Philips’ entry, Wilcontainer, worked on improving the low customer service level (CSL) for its key strategic customer. The project was innovative because it involved the customer as part of the team so they could better understand the problem and ensure the successful implementation of solutions. The team developed and implemented an Inventory Replenishment Tool to be used by the customer that allowed Philips to capture directly the customer demand and deliver the required order of the customer to maintain their ideal supply cover.


The tool also provided information on lead time and minimum order quantity to the customer for their consideration in planning since the company sources its products from 14 different factories and have a regional distribution center that consolidates shipments going to the Philippines. The result was a streamlined supply network by having a direct delivery set-up from the factory to the customer warehouse, thus simplifying physical flow and eliminating the additional handling.


This led to the achievement of the main success criteria of CSL improvement way exceeding their performance target. Aside from the CSL improvement, the project resulted in reduction of freight costs and reduction of the carbon footprint per truck because of the reduced legs of the supply network from the direct delivery. On hand to receive the award were Lyn Macasling, Demand Planner, and Nanette Sinlao, Senior Customer Service supervisor for Philips.


Johnson & Johnson (Phils.) Inc. was awarded the winner for the Green Logistics Advocacy category for its project Solatubes. This award recognizes a company that has made a significant contribution to the successful implementation of Green Logistics in their company through significant efforts to fully integrate environmental awareness into their areas of business strategy and operations.


The project called for the installation of 100 Solatubes, an innovative solution because it transmits sunlight into a structure without transmitting heat.The Solatubes could deliver greater than three times the illumination of mercury lamps while reducing electricity costs. Aside from the environmental benefits, the project also attained its objective of drastically reducing operating expenses, significantly improving illumination that resulted in more efficient picking, more robust mix-up prevention, increased safety due to overall better visibility, and maintaining temperature through proper ventilation .The award was received by Rolando Lazo, Supply Chain Director of Johnson & Johnson (Phils.) Inc.


The top winners received a trophy and P10,000 in cash plus other perks as part of their SCMAP membership. The winning entries shall present their projects during the October SCMAP General Membership Meeting.
