Geodis rewards staff innovation

GLOBAL freight management specialist Geodis Wilson has rewarded its employees who have shown creative prowess.
The French company has announced the winners of its annual ‘Innovation Masters Award’, which recognises outstanding internal innovative initiatives discovered throughout the logistic service provider’s global network.
The competition is designed to stimulate trendsetting ideas which improve performance, processes and products.
This year the award was presented to two teams of innovators and two individuals.
The winners, who received their awards at a presentation ceremony in Dubai, are: From The Netherlands, Cynthia Liauw, Erik Goosens and Rutger Jonker for their Milestone Scan Events project which is about linking milestones automatically to Geodis Wilson’s track and trace system; Johan Karlsson, Martin Henriksen and Peter Riis Rasmussen from Sweden and Denmark, who proposed the development of a package scanner that can be used via smartphones; the Hong Kong office’s Steven Pike for his initiative that centralises and standardises reporting; and from India, Raj Kiran Pant’s 24×7 customer care idea for increased customer satisfaction.
“This programme is a product of Geodis Wilson’s corporate philosophy, which contains a commitment to become the innovation leader in the freight forwarding industry,” enthuses executive vice-president Kim Pedersen.
The entry and subsequent selection process began in September 2012 and included more than 250 submissions. These were whittled down by regional judging panels to a shortlist of 15 finalists before the ultimate winners were chosen by the executive board members and previous winners.
