CICMHE Announces 2007 Outstanding Material Handling & Logistics Content Award Winners

The College Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE) announced the winners of the 2007 Outstanding Material Handling & Logistics Content Award Competition on October 2nd at the Material Handling Industry of America’s 2007 Annual Membership Meetings.

Cisco-Eagle placed for the second consecutive time with its white paper "15 Ways Material Handling Can Make Your Operation Safer." (PDF, opens a new window). The paper focused on ways to correctly store and handle products in a warehouse or industrial environment to create a safer working environment.

CICMHE developed the bi-annual Outstanding Material Handling and Logistics Content Award to recognize and encourage development of outstanding material handling and logistics related content created in the previous two calendar years. Cisco-Eagle placed second in 2005 for its extensive library of conveyor articles. It is the only company to have placed twice.

The competition is open to any organization or individual that has created content deemed to make a strong contribution to the materials handling industry. The word content includes white papers, focused topics on website pages, articles, case studies, videos, interactive CDs, and any other form or media that presents material handling related information. A mix of academic and industry judges evaluate the contributions based on educational value, clarity of presentation, and contribution to the material handling industry.

The 2009 competition will be based on content created in calendar years 2007-2008. CICMHE also sponsors the bi-annual Outstanding Material Handling Research Award. The 2008 research award will be based on research articles published in calendar years 2006-2007.
