Michael Berzon, the logistics innovator who spent his career helping companies enhance their supply chain efficiency, has passed away last Tuesday from complications associated with Alzheimer’s disease. For 40 years, he worked for various companies, helping to solve their problems with global manufacturing, sourcing, ocean shipping, domestic logistics and international marketing. He was an active and longtime member of the National Industrial Transportation League, where he chaired the influential Ocean Transportation Committee, and called upon by Congress on several occasions to testify on maritime issues.

For more than 20 years, Berzon served as chairman and president of the Containerization and Intermodal Institute (CII) and received the organization’s distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award.
