It is really good news for all in the logistic industry that The Logistics Hall of Fame exists. It gives employers and employees who work in any relevant sector within the industry a sense that the work they do matters and that the part they play in it is important. While most individuals, regardless of whether they are managers, business owners or courier drivers, don’t have a place in the Hall of Fame, having role models, motivators and sources of inspiration is a positive thing to all. |
What Is the Logistics Hall of Fame
This board of members is made up of individuals or groups of people who have made significant advancements in logistical development - be it through management initiatives, organisation, technical, scientific or business accolade. These people can work in any sector of the industry and be business owners, employers or indeed courier drivers themselves, with a new board elected every year.
Supported by the German Federal Ministry of Transport as well as other leading associations, the Logistics Hall of Fame aims to provide a global platform upon which the importance of the capability of logistics for society can be made public. Raising public awareness of the logistics industry and demonstrating how innovative it continues to be will in turn improve its image. It will also help to underpin competitiveness and encourage further development - as well as a drive future innovation.
Although normally only one person or group of people is elected every year, 2016 is going to see as many new members as possible given the opportunity to join.
The Campaign for 2016: Historic Milestones of Logistics
This proactive campaign is exciting news for employers and managers in the industry, as well as those working on ground level - such as the courier driver. Its goal is to create a document that covers the industry on a global scale and details achievements in the industry that are of an outstanding calibre. The document will cover transport and logistics, but will reach out to cover intralogistics and information logistics too.
To be cited in this document, achievements must be recorded before the year 2000 and have been proven to have had a positive and wide reaching effect.
