SkySails managing director Stephan Wrage was the winner of the DVZ logistics journal’s LEO Award in the category innovation awarded at a gala event held at the Curio-Haus in Hamburg on 12 September 2008. Awards were also presented to the winners in the categories Entrepreneur, Newcomer, Innovation, Manager and Person of the Year, as well as Lifetime Logistics Achievement.   LEO stands for Logistics Excellence Optimization and, unlike all other industrial awards, was created as a personal award for outstanding accomplishments in the field of logistics. It recognizes those individuals who have stood out through extraordinary achievements, exceptional social involvement or groundbreaking ideas.
