About the Salzberg Medallion
The Salzberg Medallion has come to be recognized as one of the most prestigious awards in the field of transportation and supply chain management-in part because of the caliber of past honorees and in part because of the program's rigorous selection process. Each year, former Salzberg Medallion recipients and other distinguished practitioners active in the transportation and supply chain management fields are invited to nominate individuals and companies for consideration for the award. A screening committee of University faculty and active professionals then deliberates and selects the honorees.
