IFOY Jury continues to grow

Additional members from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy and United Kingdom appointed to the IFOY Jury.


Ismaning near Munich, August 2, 2017.   The international jury for the IFOY Award is being expanded. In July, five new members from among more than 20 applicants around the world have been appointed to the body. Now, a total of 26 chief editors of international leading logistics publications from 18 nations are represented in the jury.

Kirsty Adams, editor-in-chief of the London-based Logistics Magazine “SHD Logistics” will now take over as IFOY Juror from Peter MacLeod, who recently left SHD. Newly appointed jurors are Dr. Cecilia Biondi, editor-in-chief of the Italian trade magazines "Logistics Management", "Impresa Sanità" and "Datavalue", Szilvia Rapi Jaubert, editor-in-chief of the Hungarian "Supply Chain Monitor" and Johannes Tomsich, editorial director of the Austrian entrepreneur magazine "Die Wirtschaft" and the newspaper "Logistik-Kurier". Also new in the jury is the editor-in-chief of lastauto omnibus, Thomas Rosenberger, who will be representing several publications of the logistic-service-provider-specialised ETM-publishing house in Germany.

Due to the expertise, the IFOY Award is seen as the authoritative innovation award in the logistics field. The jury tests and selects the year's best materials handling equipment and intralogistics solutions. The voting process is preceded by a wide-ranging nomination and testing cycle, during which the entered trucks are rigorously put through their paces. The sponsor of the IFOY Award is the VDMA Materials Handling and Intralogistics Sector Association.

The entry phase starts again on September 1, 2017.
