TPM22 and the JOC are proud to present the inaugural Salute to Diversity in Transportation and Logistics Honor. The recipient was selected by the TPM22 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Industry Working Group and by a panel of DEI experts. We received numerous outstanding nominations, as many transportations and logistics businesses and organizations are making strong, strategic efforts to drive diversity, equity, and inclusion. We look forward to naming the honoree as well as sharing the special commendations and honorable mentions put forward by the judges and the committee. Nominations for the Salute to Diversity Honor were open to all companies and organizations throughout the transportation and logistics supply chain, including ocean carriers, ports and terminals, cargo shippers, trucking and rail operators, technology firms, and logistics services providers. We invite all interested transportation and logistics organizations and companies to submit for the 2023 honor when nominations open later this year. As advocates for diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization and throughout the global supply chain, TPM, IHS Markit, and The Journal of Commerce are pleased to sponsor and facilitate the honor.
LOG-NET's Electronic Commerce Excellence award has consistently reinforced the partnership between carriers and their customers and the fundamental importance of data quality in that relationship. Digitization has made data management and data quality foundational elements of successful global supply chains. Whether the data is coming from smartphones, web forms, Internet of Things devices, AI, or EDI, it needs to be complete, timely, and accurate. Data quality is critical, considering the consumers of this information now range from import and logistics specialists to business intelligence and machine learning platforms that demand ever more granular information. Since 2003, LOG-NET CEO John Motley has presented the LOG-NET E-Commerce Excellence award at TPM. The award recognizes the efforts of the international carrier community and its outstanding daily performance with LOG-NET's Trading Partner and Data Quality teams.
