TRATON AG joined the Logistics Hall of Fame supporter circle. By doing so, one of the world´s largest commercial vehicle manufacturers fosters the documentation of logistical milestones and wants to contribute to the networking and further development of transport and logistics. TRATON comprises the brands MAN, Scania, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus and RIO.
The Logistics Hall of Fame will have another prominent member. Rolf Schnellecke, chairman of the Ssupervisory board of Schnellecke Group AG & Co. KG, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame of Logistics as an "outsourcing trendsetter and innovator of automotive logistics". He is the 34th member among the most deserving logisticians in the world. Official admission will take place on December 5 on the occasion of the annual Logistics Hall of Fame gala reception in the Erich-Klausener-Hall of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure in Berlin.
The circle of supporters of the Logistics Hall of Fame is growing further. CHEP Deutschland GmbH joined the group in June.
"Without the inventions of logistics, our world would be chaos. The Logistics Hall of Fame impressively demonstrates to all of us what logistics does for humanity every day. CHEP is more than willing to support this," says Kai Derda, Managing Director of CHEP Deutschland GmbH, explaining the company's commitment.
Steffen Bilger, Parliamentary State Secretary at the German Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, is the new juror of the Logistics Hall of Fame. In future, the parliamentarian will once a year cast his vote during the election of the new member.
The finalists for the World´s Logistics Hall of Fame selection have now been selected. Last Wednesday, Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer invited the Logistics Hall of Fame Council to the ministry, where in a first ballot the committee nominated a total of seven personalities. Prior to this, 25 valid entries from Australia, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Great Britain, Serbia, Switzerland and the USA reached the hall.
