Geodis Wilson honored its employees who have shown particular creative prowess as the company announces the winners of its annual Innovation Masters Award recognizing outstanding internal innovative initiatives throughout the logistic service provider’s global network.

The Innovation Masters Award (IMA) is Geodis Wilson’s internal competition designed to stimulate innovative thinking and to improve the performance, processes and products of the Company. The program was initiated in 2011 in order to enhance Geodis Wilson’s aim of becoming the most innovative trendsetter in global freight management.

This year the award was presented to two teams of innovators and two individuals. The winners, who received their awards at the IMA 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 the 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 Package Scanner APP that can be used via smartphones.

•    The Hong Kong office’s Steven Pike for his initiative, the Next Gen & Axapta Reporting Department that should centralize and standardise reporting.

•     From India Raj Kiran Pant’s 24x7 Customer Care idea for an increased customer satisfaction received the fourth award.

“The IMA-program is a product of Geodis Wilson’s corporate philosophy, which contains a commitment to become the innovation leader in the freight forwarding industry”, Kim Pedersen said. “Employee engagement is crucial to the success of this aim and we are justly proud of the standard of entries for the Award and of our dedicated employees, award-winners or not, they are the pivotal factor in delivering top-class customer service.”

The entry and subsequent selection process began in September 2012 and included over 250 submissions. These were whittled down by the regional judging panels to a shortlist of fifteen finalists before the ultimate winners were chosen by the executive board members and previous IMA winners.
