3000 companies from 80 industries are being tested on which companies in Germany have a particularly high quality in their consulting services. For the second time since 2018, “DEUTSCHLANDTEST” has examined the subject of "consultation". At the core of the discussion were the following questions: Which companies and retailers are strong in consulting and who is the best at delivering their services in the exact quality of what the customer wants? The winner was set as the benchmark for the industry and awarded with 100 points. The International School of Management [ISM] – a state-recognized, private and non-profit university that trains junior executives in a compact, application-oriented degree program for the internationally oriented economy – scientifically supported the study.

In October 2014, Mercedes-AMG and Müller Die lila Logistik were awarded the German Logistics Prize 2014 from the Bundesvereinigung Logistik e.V. (BVL) as part of the 31st German Logistics Congress in Berlin. The double award was given for the strategic reorientation of the logistics of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, which accompanied a double-digit sales growth per year and increasing complexity and sustainability in the variety of parts. According to the jury, the project, "Supplying Performance. Logistik also Wachstumfaktor" was innovative in its interaction of four factors: mastery of complexity, cooperation across company boundaries, high cost orientation, and consideration of aspects of economic, ecological, and social sustainability. With the German Logistics Prize, the BVL recognizes realized logistics concepts that are submitted by companies, industry, trade, and the service sector.
