Agents Of Change

I thoroughly enjoyed “Agents of Change,” particularly since I have had the privilege of working with Malcom McLean for the past fourteen years. As the article accurately points out, his development of containerized shipping has changed the world. Of interest also is that this “world-changer” continued to be actively involved in developing ways to pick up and deliver freight for less cost. From founding another innovative, successful company only three years ago to exploring entirely new concepts for handling freight today, this pioneering octogenarian continues to exemplify the classic American entrepreneurial spirit.
