The selection procedure is a two-stage process: In the first ballot, the Council nominates the finalists from among all proposals and gives an election recommendation to the jury.

In the second ballot, the jurors vote online. The jury consists of more than 60 persons: Journalists, scientists, personalities from the logistics industry, politics and associations from all over the world.

An independent selection commissioner monitors the proper electoral process.
