Although this is a German event, it also enjoys international attention as well. In the end of March, logisticians around the world were called upon to propose suitable candidates up until May 8, 2017. 17 valid proposals came from Australia, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA and of course, Germany. Most of the names are entrepreneurs and managers from the logistics service providers, humanitarian logistics, internet trading sector, intralogistics, science and media. Now, it is up to 56 experts from all fields of logistics to chose a new member for the Logistics Hall of Fame in the summer.
The vote of the jury will be announced in September. The official induction ceremony of the newly elected member traditionally takes place in November during a gala reception at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), Berlin, Germany.
