Operational strength
The Logistics 100 are leaders of companies with proven supply chains that are finely tuned for the business. Their operations are flexible, future-proof and proactive.

Driving change
Logistics 100 nominees challenge the organisation to re-consider its processes. Those inspiring organisations to reconsider operations as the industry faces unprecedented change. Logistics 100 professionals will have made positive changes to culture and agendas – and are unafraid to challenge traditional or outdated ways of thinking.

The Logistics 100 influence at the top level of decision makers. They exhibit good communication skills to their teams, to the business and to the wider industry.

Capital investors
Logistics 100 nominees should influence buying decisions in an industry which adds over £90 billion to the UK's GDP.

Logistics 100 nominees need to be visionaries, bursting with ideas for what an organisation could do. Logistics 100 nominees are drivers of organisations that can demonstrate new business models and opportunities.

Those selected to be part of The SHD Logistics 100 list are people who are likely to debate, engage, question, network and maximise the opportunities The Logistics 100 project presents.

Rising star
The 'Rising Star' is someone recognised to be a rising talent, who has demonstrated exceptional ability and ambition. Nominees will usually be aged between 18 and 32.

The SHD Logistics community

As the organiser of the UK’s largest intralogistics event IMHX and publishers of the UK’s leading logistics magazine SHD Logistics, it’s essential we connect with the industry we serve. Issues raised, feedback and insight from The Logistics 100 events will feed into what we do within the logistics industry.

Members of the exclusive The Logistics 100 ‘club’ are invited, as our VIP guests, to select SHD Logistics events including:

-    The SHD Logistics Conferences
-    Exclusive IMHX/SHD Logistics Roundtable Events


2016 and beyond

In 2015/2016, our panel of experts nominated and voted for the inaugural list, but provided valuable feedback on how the project should develop for 2016 and beyond. Suggestions have included; more experts on the panel and The Logistics 100 members voting for rising stars.
