The Logistics Hall of Fame has a new member. Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon has made it among the ranks of the world's most famous logisticians. He has been honored as a “revolutioniser of e-commerce and logistics”. Bezos will be officially inducted in a ceremony at the annual Logistics Hall of Fame Gala in the Erich Klausener Hall of the German Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure in Berlin on November 9.
Jeff Bezos can claim to have revolutionised logistics in the mail order sector. In the words of the jury, he was the first to realise that software and logistics are key to the shift from purchasing-driven trading to demand-driven online trading. Thanks to a combination of software, efficient delivery, automation and long-term strategy, the computer scientist transformed transport logistics and intralogistics from the ground up, making Amazon a benchmark for the sector as a whole. Almost any technological development is nowadays influenced by e-commerce and many innovations are geared exclusively towards e-commerce. Bezos also impressively demonstrated that innovative logistics make an important contribution to corporate success.
