The Bernard J. La Londe Best Paper Award is presented to the winner at CSCMP’s Annual Conference.

  • new and helpful information
  • logistics and supply chain management theory or techniques;
  • research generalizations about logistics and supply chain management thought and practice;
  • creative views and syntheses of dispersed concepts in logistics and supply chain management; and
  • articles in subject areas which have significant current impact on thought and practice in logistics and supply chain management which present challenges for the future.
