The National Industrial Transportation League (NITL) announced that the recipient of the 2011 Logistics Executive of the Year Award goes to the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood.

This award is presented jointly by Logistics Management Magazine and the NITL.

The honor is also known as the” McCullough Award” and is named after John T. McCullough, a former chief of Distribution magazine, a predecessor of Logistics Management. Secretary LaHood was selected on the basis of nominations that were provided by the NITL’s membership.

The Award has been given annually since 1979 to an individual or organization that has distinguished themselves in the freight transportation industry. The NITL’s Board of Directors then voted from this list of names and chose the Secretary for the Award.

He has helped develop and implement the Obama Administration’s priorities and policies regarding all transportation modes and infrastructure. Before becoming Secretary of Transportation, LaHood served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995-2009, representing the 18th Congressional District of Illinois, and also served on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

The Award wast presented to LaHood at the TransComp Exhibition’s Industry Awards Closing Luncheon on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 in Atlanta, GA. LaHood will also gave the keynote address after receiving the award.
