Very team scoops Distribution Heroes prize at Retail Week Awards

March 31, 2023

The Very Group’s fulfilment development and analytics team picked up the Distribution Heroes prize at the 2023 Retail Week Awards last night (30 May).

The prestigious event, which is the most highly anticipated awards ceremony in the retail calendar, celebrates the innovation, vision, resilience, and drive behind the industry’s greatest achievements.

Taking place at London’s O2 Intercontinental Hotel, the awards saw Very crowned a winner alongside retailers including Aldi, Amazon, and Primark.

The judges were particularly impressed with the team’s success in improving collation (the number of items in one order provided as a single parcel instead of being sent in multiple parcels). 

Mike Wheeler, fulfilment director at Very, commented: “I’m really proud of our team and what they’ve achieved. They’ve shown energy, creativity, and commitment, using data and analytics to make the experience better for customers and deliver efficiencies for our business. It’s fantastic to be recognised in this way.

“I want to thank the team and everyone at our fulfilment centres for everything they’ve done, and I look forward to even more success in the future.”
