ISMANING, Germany – The Logistics Hall of Fame has added four new jury members shortly before this year’s voting begins.

For the first time these jurors will cast their vote:

  • Christian Doepgen, Editor-in-Chief and Publishing Director of the International Transport Journal (ITJ), Basel, Switzerland
  • Hildegard Müller, President of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), Berlin, Germany
  • Markus Olligschläger, General Manager of the Federal Association of Economics, Transport and Logistics (BWVL), Bonn, Germany
  • Heike van Hoorn, Managing Director German Transport Forum (DVF), Berlin, Germany

The Logistics Hall of Fame Council first creates a shortlists from all entries for induction into the international Logistics Hall of Fame and the finalists for the “Logistics Leader of the Year”. The jury then decides who will be honoured at the end of the year.

A total of 70 jury members from 11 countries will vote on who will enter the Logistics Hall of Fame at the end of 2020 and who will receive the “Logistics Leader of the Year” award. The jurors come from business, the media, associations and politics or are active as scientists.

Both awards will be presented at the annual gala reception in early December, which in 2020 will be celebrated for the 10th time in Berlin.
