Propose Logistics Leader correctly

The Logistics Leader of the Year Award is the highest award of the Hall of Fame for non-members. How to correctly propose candidates or apply.

First of all, there is a basic question: Should a person be submitted for admission into the Logistics Hall of Fame or for the "Logistics Leader of the Year Award"?

There are two fundamental differences: In order to be considered for membership of the Logistics Hall of Fame, the achievement must firstly be permanent and secondly benefit a larger group of institutions beyond the boundaries of the own company itself. It must be a milestone in logistics.

The performance of a Logistics Leader, on the other hand, should be successful for one's own company or have set a current, highly regarded impulse that sets a trend for the industry.

A Logistics Leader can therefore also become a member of the Logistics Hall of Fame, if a performance is lasting.
