The Professional Body for Supply Chain Management (Sapics) has been named the Outstanding Channel Partner for the Middle East and Africa (MEA) at this years' Apics Regional Learning Partner Awards in the United States.
The event was hosted by The Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM), which represents a global network of supply chain professionals.
"The ASCM Global Channel and Alliances team recognised the important role that Sapics is playing in building a community of educated supply chain professionals in Africa. SAPICS was commended for our commitment to quality, professionalism and continuous improvement, and for our success in developing individuals and organisations in the supply chain profession through educational programmes, conferences and events,” says Jenny Froome, COO of Sapics.
“Supply chain proficiency and competence is a catalyst for economic growth. There has never been a greater need for qualified, certified, professionally designated and ethically accountable supply chain professionals than there is in Africa today.
"Sapics is proud to be at the forefront of the drive to develop and professionalise supply chain management, and delighted to have our achievements recognised by ASCM," concludes Froome.
