Since 2013, the IFOY Award has become an established benchmark for cost efficiency and innovation. Due to the specialized expertise it represents, it is seen as the most important innovation award in intralogistics.
The winners are selected once a year by an independent jury of leading international trade journalists. A neutral test and a scientific Innovation Check form the basis for assessment by the jury. Both test series compare the finalists with their respective competitors.
The sponsor of the IFOY Awards, presented under the patronage of the German Ministry of Economics and Energy, is the VDMA Materials Handling and Logistics Systems Sector Association. Official IFOY partner is CeMAT. IFOY pallet partner is Chep and IFOY technology partner is battery charging specialist Fronius.
