2018 Winner: Mead Johnson Nutrition

  • Mead Johnson successfully met its goal for 2018 to boost efficiency through increased automation by increasing the volume of transactions going through the GHX Exchange.

  • In every quarter of 2018, the company increased purchase order (PO) volume, PO lines, PO gross transaction volume (GTV) and the number of electronic trading partners.
