The proposal portal for the Logistics Hall of Fame has opened. Anyone can now be proposed or submit applications from around the world for induction into the international logistics pantheon. The achievements may be of a technical, strategic, scientific, business management or entrepreneurial nature. The decisive factor is that these achievements not only benefited an individual company but had a positive impact on the entire logistics sector.
Furthermore, these achievements must already be in the past; theoretical concepts are not sufficient. Groups may also apply or be proposed for induction.
In the first selection round up to ten finalists will be nominated from all the proposals, from among the international expert jury will choose one new member. The members of the nomination committee are:
Proposals and applications are free of charge and can be submitted in English or German language online. The public proposal phase ends on 8th May 2017. The newly elected member will be inducted at the annual Logistics Hall of Fame gala in November at the Federal Ministry of Transport in Berlin, Germany.
The Logistics Hall of Fame is supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport as well as the relevant sector associations, media and companies, including the Port of Duisburg (duisport), Gebrüder Weiss, logistics insurer Kravag, the Fahrzeugwerk Bernard Krone company, intralogistics provider Still, the Federal Central Cooperative for Road Transport (SVG) and the TimoCom freight exchange.
