Hamburg, 30 November 2023 - This year's "Logistics Leader of the Year" award goes to Axel Frey and Harald Seifert of the Seifert Logistics Group for their company management based on the principle of "employees first". The award honours entrepreneurs whose ideas and work already show today that they will play a key role in shaping the future of logistics. STILL, the Hamburg-based intralogistics specialist, has sponsored the "Logistics Leader of the Year" award since this year. Last night, Frank Müller, Senior Vice President Sales & Service Business Development at STILL, presented the coveted trophy at the Logistic Hall of Fame Gala in Berlin.
In their strategic reorientation of the family-owned Seifert Logistics Group, Harald Seifert, Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Seifert Logistics Group, and Axel Frey, CEO of the Seifert Logistics Group, have relied consistently and with great economic success on employee focus, digitalisation and sustainable growth for several years. The jury of the "Logistics Leader of the Year" award was particularly impressed by their "employees first" philosophy. According to the jury, this is an impressive sign of the future viability of the logistics industry and provides a point of reference, especially for logistics characterised by medium-sized companies.
STILL takes innovators and pioneers to a new level
Just as the logistics leaders are taking the logistics industry to a new level, STILL is lifting these innovative minds to a new level by sponsoring the award. STILL gives all visionaries space to freely develop their ideas - and a stage to share their pioneering innovations with the world.

"We are all the more pleased that by sponsoring this award we can encourage innovators in the industry on their way and give them the public attention they deserve," adds Frank Müller, Senior Vice President Sales & Service Business Development STILL, who presented the coveted trophy to the winners from the Seifert Logistics Group at the Logistics Hall of Fame Gala in Berlin yesterday.
