   Rolf Schnellecke, chairman of the supervisory board of Schnellecke Group AG & Co. KG, was inducted into the Logistics Hall of Fame during a Federal Ministry of Transport event in Berlin on Wednesday.
   “The members of the Logistics Hall of Fame are visionary people, driving forces and pioneers. With their ideas, their innovations, their entrepreneurship and their courage, they have optimized and developed logistics all over the world. And they have brought us growth and prosperity. With vision and determination Professor Rolf Schnellecke has raised especially the logistics of the automotive industry to a new level. For this he deserves gratitude and respect,” said Andreas Scheuer, Germany’s federal minister of transport.
   Thomas Wimmer, chairman of the management board of the German Logistics Association, paid tribute to Schnellecke. “In 1990, Schnellecke was the first freight forwarder to carry out assembly work as part of the VW production. He has developed this form of cooperation into a trademark: value-added logistics for the automotive industry,” Wimmer said.
   Schnellecke is the 34th member of the Hall of Fame. He was chosen out of 25 candidates from Australia, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Great Britain, Serbia, Switzerland and the USA by an international jury.

   She has more than 20 years of experience leading global corporate and brand communications for external and internal audiences. Coffey spent the majority of her career at Avon Products Inc.
