March 18, 2015 (DES PLAINES, Ill.) –IWLA, the resource for warehouse logistics, recently awarded the Jock Menzies IWLA Distinguished Service & Leadership Award to Gary Minardi, president of San Jose Distribution Services, headquartered in San Jose, Calif. Minardi received the award among his industry peers during the International Warehouse Logistics Association annual business meeting March 10, 2015, in Savannah, Ga. The meeting was part of the larger 2015 IWLA Convention & Expo.
The 2015 IWLA Jock Menzies Distinguished Service Award is one of the warehousing industry’s highest honors. It recognizes outstanding leadership and service to the warehouse logistics industry and to IWLA, the industry’s trade association.
“Gary Minardi is a leading authority on rail and transportation issues in the warehouse logistics industry,” says IWLA Chairman of the Board Rob Doyle, CWLP, vice president of business development, Commercial Warehousing. “His more than 35 years of experience in warehousing and transportation allow him to provide expertise and guidance to the association and to his fellow warehouse logistics professionals. He’s made the association stronger and the industry a more effective link in the supply chain.”
Minardi is past president of the California Warehouse Association, a former member of the IWLA board directors, and co-chairman of the IWLA Transportation Advisory Council. He has also provided expert witness testimony to the Surface Transportation Board.
The award, first bestowed in 1996, was dedicated in 2014 to Jock Menzies III, co-founder and former president of the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN), who passed away in 2013.
