With its annual logistics award, the international weekly newspaper VERKEHR presents outstanding personalities and companies as well as innovative young start-ups in logistics to honor their achievements and introduce them to a wider audience. On November 18, 2020, the vote for “Logistics Manager of the Year” took place for the ninth time. In addition, readers also voted for the “Logistics Start-up of the Year” as well as the “Logistics Brand of the Year”. The winners are determined from an overall vote, which results in equal parts from the decision of a renowned specialist and brand advisory board and the online voting by readers of the weekly newspaper “Verkehr”. In order to be nominated, a company or personality must have achieved above-average performance in at least one of the following categories: ecology, innovation, economy and role model effect (education and training, quality, reputation).
Stefan Krauter is delighted about this acknowledgement of the company’s excellent performance, even in challenging times: “I am very touched by this award, since the newspaper Verkehr has been with me practically my entire life. It has always been an important point of reference in a time of great change, where we all have to adapt to many challenges, which is especially true this year.”
