International end-to-end supply chain specialist, Advanced Supply Chain Group (ASCG) has been shortlisted at the most highly respected industry awards in fashion retail, the Drapers Awards 2017.

The business has been shortlisted in a partnership with ASOS in the Best Innovation in Fashion Retail category for their Intelligent Logistics offering. 

The award, sponsored by Scotch Corner, sets out to recognise the best implementation of technological innovation that has made a sustainable impact on the operation of its business and the experience of its customers in the past 12 months.

Facing stiff competition from across the UK, the supply chain specialist hopes to secure the award with their Intelligent Logistics approach. Intelligent Logistics is an innovative mix of tools, bespoke software, data analytics, process and experience developed by ASCG to enable the business to deliver the most effective, efficient and cutting edge supply chain to their clients. It provides complete visibility, control and traceability as well as improving productivity through seamless systems integration, accurate stock management, order personalisation, scalability and fast, cost efficient fulfilment.

Mike Danby, CEO of ASCG commented: “Our commitment to technology and innovation has revolutionised the way we work with our customers. Put simply, we’ve been able to make processes faster, cheaper and better, and we have only begun to scratch the surface. It’s crucial that we continue to think seriously about future innovations and address the challenges and opportunities ahead.

“ASOS is a market leader and together we are proudly setting new standards for the industry.”

Winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony, taking place on 30 November at the iconic Roundhouse in London which will see over 800 of the great and good from the industry gather to celebrate the best in UK fashion retail.

Mike continued: “The standard across these awards demonstrates that the UK is a global heavyweight when it comes to commerce. We must continue to make these groundbreaking strides in supply chain systems and capabilities to retain our place internationally.”

ASCG are also sponsors of the Fashion Retail Business of the Year (£30m-£100m turnover) category.
