About the European Logistics Association (ELA) and the ELA Award

The European Logistics Association (ELA) is an organization encompassing more than 30 national logistics federations in Western and Central Europe and beyond. The members of these national logistics federations are logistics specialists and predominantly come from industry as well as various service sectors. The ELA reaches 55,000 logistics specialists within its network. The organization supports a profession and not a sector and is therefore a neutral body. The ELA provides logistics specialists with a platform for networking and supports professions in the logistics and supply chain segment. To achieve this, the organization confers the ELA Award once a year, the European gold medal in the field of logistics and supply chain. From the finalists of the respective national prize winners the ELA selects the best logistics project and the best logistics professional of the year. In addition, the organization offers a certification program that targets a uniform qualification standard in the logistics sector and maintains an intensive exchange with the European Parliament and different Directorate Generals in the European Commission.
