Logistics Hall of Fame Assigns Honorary Award to #LogistikHilft
The Logistics Hall of Fame is awarding an honorary award for the first time in its existence: During the official gala reception in Berlin, the international Hall of Fame will be honouring the #LogistikHilft initiative.
The around 70-member international jury of the Logistics Hall of Fame, which includes journalists, scientists and personalities from the logistics industry, politics and associations, will honour the honorary commitment of the initiative with this award. During the Corona crisis, the initiative demonstrated that fast and unbureaucratic help is always possible. In the eyes of the jury, the decisive factor for the honorary award was the fact that all financial resources collected by the initiative do not go indirectly to the logistics industry, but directly to those who need them. “#LogistikHilft has set an example of solidarity with logistics – far beyond the economic success of individual companies,” the jury justified its decision.
The initiators of #LogistikHilft are the Federal Ministry of Transport, the Bundesverband Güterkraftverkehr Logistik und Entsorgung (BGL), the Docstop and Sanistop initiatives, the Fraunhofer IML, the Logistics Alliance Germany and a large number of partners and supporters from transport logistics, the commercial vehicle industry, the media and associations. Among other things, the initiative helped to ensure that truck drivers have hygienic and clean toilets and shower facilities even during the corona crisis. In April, a first sanitary container was installed on the A8 motorway at the Höllberg-Nord rest stop between Stuttgart and Pforzheim, followed by a second one near Berlin. By the end of 2020, around 150 of these facilities are to be erected on freeways, but also in large logistics centers.
