Jaguar Land Rover has clinched victory in the CIPS Supply Management Awards 2017.
On a night to celebrate the best of the procurement profession, the car maker showed it has gone the extra mile, picking up Best Supplier Relationship Management and going on to become winner of the winners.
“Jaguar Land Rover truly is best in class,” said the judges. “The essence of this approach is collaborative, accountable and full of professional pride.”
