- Cube storage pioneers from Norway inducted into the world hall of fame.
- Axel Frey and Harry Seifert receive Logistics Leader of the Year Award.
- US aid organisation International Medical Corps receives the Lynn C. Fritz Medal for Excellence in Humanitarian Logistics, which was awarded for the first time.
The Munich-based family business Baumann Paletten will once again be part of the Logistics Hall of Fame's circle of supporters in the coming year.
With its internally developed software “Pharmaceutical Information Management System” (PIMS), the Los Angeles-based organization International Medical Corps started a revolution in the management of the last mile in the pharmaceutical supply chain. Humanitarian organizations, pharmacies, governments and, most importantly, patients benefit from the IT deployment, which brings great time savings and deep transparency to the supply chain in disaster areas.
Cube storage pioneers Jakob Hatteland (72) and Ingvar Hognaland (68) will be inducted into the Logistics Hall of Fame. The two Norwegians can claim to have reinvented and commercialised warehousing with the AutoStore system. The underlying principle of cube storage automation is one of the most important inventions in modern logistics and has established itself worldwide as the standard and model for highly efficient automated small parts warehouses.
The Logistics Leader of the Year Award, donated by Hamburg-based STILL GmbH, goes to Axel Frey and Harry Seifert.
