Those who made it onto the shortlists fought off some tough competition; and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those companies and individuals that shared their stories with us this summer. 

"Following feedback from both the 2013 judging panel and our members, we have tailored our awards categories to ensure that they are relevant to a broader range of companies – from multinational operators to SMEs [small and medium-sized enterprises] within the industry's GBP 35 billion [$57 billion] supply chain. Our expert judges have a difficult task ahead, as this is our largest group of finalists yet."
