Every year, our editorial staff sifts through the 100-plus submissions for our Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award, and every year, I am more and more impressed by the rock stars of the supply chain, who continue to go above and beyond to improve food safety, enhance efficiency and disrupt supply chain disruptions. 

And this year's roundup of winners is no different.

This year's winners are collaborative, passionate, innovative and forward-thinking; they're an inspiration to their teams and viewed as mentors to those entering the supply chain space; they're dubbed as loyal, dependable and driven; and they're visionary, ambitious and lead by example.

These supply chain rock stars are the true backbone of the cold food chain.

That's why we upped the game and revamped the Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award, now breaking the submissions into four four distinct categories:    

  • Top Warehousing Stars -- Recognizes professionals in the cold storage and warehousing space.    
  • Top Shippers -- Recognizes professionals in the transportation space.     
  • Rising Stars -- Recognizes young or newer professionals (39 and under) whose achievements, hard work and vision have shaped the supply chain network.
  • Lifetime Achievement -- Honors company leaders who’ve made outstanding contributions to the supply chain space. 

Also in this issue are cutting-edge interviews with supply chain leaders on mitigating supply chain risk, revolutionizing the last mile and new solutions pertaining to supply chain visibility. Check out expert columns on how to overcome cargo theft, understanding cold storage real estate regulations and how to enhance worker safety. And be sure to sign up for our twice-weekly e-newsletter, Cold Chain Insights and become more connected to the Food Logistics community.
