The Supply Chain Visibility Award category recognises projects that can demonstrate excellence in supply chain visibility right through the supply chain.
The award entry features a longstanding TBA customer - Encirc, part of the Vidrala Group. Encirc has been using Autostore Warehouse Management System for 17 years to achieve optimal warehouse operations accounting for, and adapting to, many sophisticated product flows.
“The collaboration between TBA Leicester and Encirc has led to many developments and achievements throughout the years. It is wonderful to see the outcomes of our thriving partnership being celebrated and recognised. This achievement sets TBA Leicester apart by acknowledging its trajectory in becoming an industry-leading software and automation provider in the logistics industry."

Encirc’s Elton plant in Cheshire, UK is Europe’s largest automated warehousing facility.
The Supply Chain Excellence Awards have become the benchmark for the supply chain’s best practices and is renowned for their rigorous judging process.
The awards are into their 26th year this year, and the shortlist is a testament for TBA Leicester’s innovative approach in its practices.
Encirc’s container glass warehouse is the largest and one of the most sophisticated automated warehouses in Europe. Since 2005 Autostore WMS has continued to prove itself as a robust and efficient system for Encirc’s advanced operations.
”Autostore’s Architecture and TBA’s detailed understanding of Encirc’s end to end operations has allowed an innovative approach to project implementation. This approach combined with the Encirc operation teams’ engagement, planning, preparation & execution reduced commissioning downtime by 45% and the impact to glass container furnaces by 90% - an excellent job performed by all!"
— Mark Williams, Strategic Project Manager at Encirc Logistics
