The American Logistics Aid Network has opened nominations for its fifth annual Humanitarian Logistics Awards for members of the industry and researchers who have contributed to the field.
“Many humanitarian efforts couldn’t happen – or happen as well – without the generosity of the supply chain community,” said ALAN Executive Director Kathy Fulton. “These awards were created to shine a light on that generosity and honor some of our industry’s most unsung heroes.”
Established in 2017, ALAN said the awards recognize companies and individuals who exemplify the best that the supply chain has to offer by assuring that aid and comfort are rapidly delivered to communities in crisis.
Nominations (including self-nominations) can be made via ALAN’s website between now and June 30. The winners will be announced next fall.
ALAN’s Humanitarian Logistics Awards are open to any logistics professional, academic, organization or department. They are awarded in four key categories, each of which can have multiple honorees:
- Outstanding Contribution to Disaster Logistics.
- Employee Engagement.
- Research and Academic Contributions.
- Lifetime Achievement.
“While we’re familiar with many of the ALAN-related philanthropic activities that have taken place in transportation and warehousing, there are many others that we won’t be aware of – and able to honor – unless people take the time to let us know about them,” Fulton added.
“That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to take the time to submit a nomination this month. We genuinely appreciate hearing about some of the other amazing work that’s being done and look forward to announcing our latest winners in September.”.
