GHX recently announced the all-new Supply Chains of Distinction Award, starting with the 2023 performance year. Today’s supply chains have evolved to become more automated, data-driven and broader reaching, giving rise to a set of universally accepted “perfect order” metrics that more accurately measure organizational performance. Accordingly, GHX will sunset the GHX Best 50 Award rankings and incorporate perfect order metrics as the foundation for the new Supply Chains of Distinction Award.
