RIP Jock Menzies; Game changers for TMS; Nightingale joins GENCO
It was with great sadness that I heard about the passing of Jock Menzies. I had the pleasure of meeting Jock on many occasions over the years, and we at eyefortransport were pleased to raise money for The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) during the 3PL Summit in Chicago in 2012. He will be sorely missed from the logistics community. There is a facility to donate money to ALAN in memory of Jock on their website http://www.alanaid.org/.
Rest in Peace Jock.
