Canadian Shipper and Inside Logistics also want to sincerely thank Nick Krukowski for his many years of leadership as publisher. Krukowski guided Canadian Shipper through the Great Recession and the eventual upswing, as well as spearheading significant adjustments along the way to maintain both publication’s leadership and relevance among Canada’s transportation and supply chain professionals. Evidence of this last endeavour is seen in the redesign and rebranding of MM&D to Inside Logistics. Krukowski will be missed and we wish him well in his new endeavors.
