Another year has flown by and in a couple of weeks we will welcome 2014! Where does the time go when you are having fun in logistics!
Instead of sending Christmas cards this year, the MACS team have again opted to make a donation to charity. Our choice this year is Cancer Research UK. Although you will not receive a personal card from us, the whole MACS team wish you all – our customers, suppliers, distributors and business partners – a very happy Christmas and a successful and prosperous New Year.
By way of a little tradition and for those who are interested in the Chinese calendar, 2014 is the year of the horse. People born during the year are said to have a pleasant, amiable and easy going disposition, which guarantees popularity and a large following of friends. The horse would be most suited to politics. Again (strangeley) no mention of logistics but the spirit of the horse is reflected in an unremitting ethos to improve oneself. That is the nature of logistics!
Earlier this year, following a devastating earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreak, MACS sent in reinforcements to get the SCMS (a delivery partner for USAID) warehouse, which despatches vital antiviral drugs, back to full operational capacity.
We all celebrated MACS Software’s 21st birthday recently with a staff trip to the Sutton Elms Go-Karting circuit in Leicestershire in order to let off a little steam. Some of the team showed a natural aptitude for thrashing around a race track – a far cry from our day jobs designing software for some of the world’s leading corporations.
