Milan, November 8th, 2019 – Massimo Marciani, chairman of the Freight Leaders Council, is among the winners of the Logistics award of the year 2019. The prestigious award, now in its 15th edition as awarded by Assologistica, was handed to Marciani this morning during a dedicated event that took place in Assolombarda.
“For the significant contribution to the growth and development of urban logistics in our country”. This is the reason for the award given to Marciani. “The development of increasingly efficient and resilient city logistics systems is the focus of my work – Marciani said, receiving recognition – either when I represent Italy in international meetings, and when I worked side by side with the small firm of the remote town who had to find an innovative and sustainable way to cope with the always changing demand of his customers. Urban Logistics ecosystem has always fascinated me and I tried to give my best to raise awareness of all the stakeholders in the supply chain di beyond. For many years, within the framework of the Freight Leaders Council also, I have been working on these issues that recently, with the explosion of e-commerce, are increasingly attracting the attention of public administrations, politics and the general public. I thank Assologistica and all the community that in recent years has supported me and my ideas. I proudly put this award on the bulletin board and from tomorrow morning I go back to work on urban logistics because we still have a long way to go together ”.
