CSCMP's Supply Chain Hall of Fame

At the 2016 Annual Conference, the creation of CSCMP's Supply Chain Hall of Fame was announced to recognize and archive the significant achievements of those who have created, innovated, and mastered the discipline of supply chain management. The Hall of Fame signifies the life-long accomplishments of those members of our industry who have truly improved the world we live in.

CSCMP is committed to preserving the history of some of the greatest, life-changing innovations and inventions from around the world, celebrating the astounding practitioners and academics who have made the supply chain management industry what it is today. From mass production assembly lines to ocean freight containers, from UPC to tracking systems, the evolution of physical distribution to logistics to supply chain management has changed the face of history time and time again.

But it is not only the concepts, inventions, and innovations that should be celebrated and remembered, it is also the people who took an impossible dream and made it a reality. This honor recognizes individuals that have made a significant impact on the landscape of supply chain management. Nominees must have experienced significant success in the industry, illustrated extraordinary leadership skills, and served as a role model to supply chain students, young professionals, and budding entrepreneurs.
