Hall of Fame

HALL OF FAME: RECOGNIZING A LIFETIME OF OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION

The Global Institute of Logistics Hall of Fame serves as a way to recognize distinguished members of the Global logistics community. Those elected to membership in to the Hall of Fame represent the highest achievement in their field, serving as models of what can be achieved and how.

Induction as a Laureate into the Global Institute of Logistics Hall of Fame is a lifetime achievement award for individuals who have made a major, positive impact on the logistics profession as visionary business leaders with a strong commitment to the community. The Global Institute of Logistics Hall of Fame Laureates will serve as inspirations to current and future generations.

Each year the Institute invites the Executive Directors of its various councils and chapters globally to nominate individuals for induction into the Institutes Hall of Fame. These nominations feed discussions about what constitutes excellence and success in individual logisticians.

The goal is to improve logistics practice by identifying the outstanding logistician in the field over the course of a lifetime. Nominations are acted on by a panel of expert judges, who decide which nominee will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Bob, the Institute's founding Chairman, was known as the "Number's Man" as a result of establishing a system for calculating the cost of logistics as a percentage of national GDP in the US.This methodology has been the foundation for the industry-leading report in the US logistics sector 'The Annual State of Logistics Report', which Bob authored assisted by Roslyn Wilson until his untimely death in 2004. The report, now authored by Rosalyn, produces a percentage figure once a year on the cost of logistics as well as an overview of the US logistics industry. The report is traditionally delivered every July in the National press club in Washington.

Bob's son Mr Eddie Delaney, traveled to Atlanta to accept the accolade during an industry dinner. Mr Delaney, who died in 2004, is the first person to receive this honor.

Hall of Fame

In the words of leading academic Professor Jean Paul Rodrigue, "Gustaaf De Monie has been in the unique position of being able to observe the developments of containerization from its introduction as an uncertain and unproven technical innovation to becoming the main support of globalization and international trade. More than a keen observer, he was able to influence policy and accurately anticipate development trends well before they became recognized facts. Gustaaf excels at combining deep knowledge and vision"

"I am very proud to have been inducted into the Hall of Fame, because of my work with regard to the many research studies in shipping and ports and of the large number of investigative papers and reports for International Organizations, port industry leaders, governments, port authorities and international terminal operating companies. I wish all new inductees in the Hall of Fame all possible future success and that they may further contribute to the ever growing reputation of the Global Institute of Logistics"

JEAN-LOUIS CAMBON: VOICE OF REASON BETWEEN THE CARGO OWNER & SHIP CO.

Jean Louis Cambon, former head of Michelin Ocean Management Committee in Paris, was inducted into the Institute's 'Hall of Fame' at their 8th Annual European Chapter dinner on Tuesday 16th of April 2013. The dinner was held at the Hotel Le Plaza, Brussels.Mr. Cambon was a forceful voice for shippers, constantly championing the issues faced by the shipper industry through his work at the French Shippers’ Council (AUTF) and, later, his Chairmanship of the European Shippers Council’s (ESC) Maritime Transport Council.

Jean Louis Cambon

The Institute had been collaborating with the late Mr. Cambon to learn more from his perspective about the shippers’ view of the global supply chain and from the Institutes perspective introduce to him the potential we believe exists in the shipper community forging direct relationships with port communities.
Joachim Coens Chairman of the Institute in Europe said on the night:
“Mr. Cambon made many important contributions to the global maritime industry, but it will be his work as Chair of the Maritime Transport Council at the European Shippers Council that he will be most remembered for. He was exactly what the industry needed to help to navigate the central but sometimes challenging relationship between cargo owner and shipping line.

The relationship was particularly strained at the time of his appointment due in no small part to the global recession which gripped the world. His voice of reason soared above the cacophony of noise emanating from both sides of the debate and it became evident quickly that he was leading change.
Jean-Louis’ sense of fairness and reason convinced many that he had found a way forward, he had rapidly come to the attention of the industry’s media and was increasingly being looked to for thought leadership.

It was against this backdrop that the industry learned of his untimely passing and was left with a sense of unfinished business. This is why the Institute decided to honour Jean-Louis Cambon; firstly to protect his legacy and secondly to record his vision so as to set a firm foundation, for those who come next to build on and continue from”
