International project wins award for Huddersfield logistics consultancy

Supply chain and logistics consultancy Scala has been named the latest winner of the Huddersfield Town Shooting Star award.

The Shooting Star award, run by Huddersfield Town F.C. in association with Lucas Lee, celebrates exceptional businesses across Huddersfield and West Yorkshire. SCALA received the award for its international joint venture with Ocean Group China, assisting UK and European businesses looking to supply to China.

Specifically, the judges cited SCALA’s recent project with Fortune Global 500 firm Sinomach – the China National Machinery Industry Corporation – which was a joint business venture to improve the businesses supply chain and logistics offering in its native China. In this project SCALA was, among other benefits, able to reduce Sinomach’s logistics costs by 9%.

Scala has grown by 40% over the past year, and recently expanded its board-level expertise with the appointments of Oliver Cofler as associate director and Nigel Smith as executive director to help drive its international growth ambitions.

MD John Perry said: “It’s fantastic to see the wonderful work our team do recognised through this award. Whether it’s our head office team supporting clients from here in Huddersfield, or our team of experts based across the country and abroad, our staff regularly go above and beyond the call of duty, so we’re hugely appreciative of Huddersfield Town recognising their efforts in this way.

“I’m a life-long Wolves fan myself, but I also follow Town’s fortunes closely. Here’s hoping they have a great season and re-join us in the Premier League again next year – as long as they don’t carry on their habit of taking points off us!”

John Williams, partnerships commercial manager at Huddersfield Town, added: “SCALA has done a fantastic job in partnering up with Fortune Global 500 firm Sinomach for a joint business venture in its native China.”

“I wish John and the team all the best for the future and look forward to hearing more about their partnership in China.”
