The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) Opens Nominations for Humanitarian Logistics Awards

Material handling is the behind the scenes industry that makes supply chains work and without supply chain, the world would not connect and transfer goods as we know it to today. The supply chain is always on and always working for you, even in times of disruption.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chain has faced unique challenges in logistics and supply and demand. To assist in these challenges, we’ve seen the supply chain industry do amazing things to better the safety of our citizens and the security of our economy.

Earlier this week, The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) officially opened nominations for its fourth annual Humanitarian Logistics Awards. Established in 2017, ALAN’s Humanitarian Logistics 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. Over the past 12 months, the logistics industry has been especially heroic and deserving of recognition. If you or your company has been involved in humanitarian initiatives, we urge you to apply.

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.

– In-Kind/Financial Award
– Employee Engagement Award
– Research/Academic Achievement Award
– Lifetime Achievement Award

Nominations (including self-nominations) can be made via ALAN’s web site between now and Friday, July 10. For a full list of rules and nomination criteria go to:
