Awards

The MHEFI Exceptional Contribution Award will be awarded only when a sufficient body of documentation has been presented to convince a panel of judges that an award should be made to an individual, corporation or organization that has contributed to the industry in an extraordinary way or to an extraordinary degree. Unlike the industry’s lifetime achievement awards, The MHEFI Exceptional Contribution Award will be focused on shorter term events, programs and contributions, or extended influence and/or contributions in more narrowly focused industry activities.

The Reed-Apple Award is a lifetime achievement award that was established in 1981 as a permanent tribute to the memory of Drs. Ruddell Reed, Jr. and James M. Apple, renowned material handling educators and innovators.

The first Reed-Apple Award was presented to the winners of the 1981 Material Handling Concepts Contest, which was held in conjunction with the 1981 National Material Handling Show. When the Concepts Contest was discontinued, it was decided to further honor the memories of Rudy Reed and Jim Apple by presenting the award which was named for them to those persons, companies or groups which have made an extraordinary, continuing contribution to material handling and material handling education.

The Reed-Apple Award is sponsored by The Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc. (MHEFI) and is awarded only when a sufficient body of documentation has been presented to convince a panel of judges that an award should be made to an individual, corporation or organization that has contributed to material handling and logistics education in an extraordinary way and to an extraordinary degree.
