The events are tailored to address specific needs and advancements within the unique business climate of the 3PL industry.

“Warehouse-based 3PLs are unlike any other organizations: Their work is the crossroads of the supply chain and their knowledge and delivery varies from client to client. This reality requires highly individualized content geared toward specific needs and challenges of warehouse professionals,” says IWLA president & CEO Joel Anderson. “IWLA goes to great lengths to prioritize the most relevant topics, develop content outlines and locate top experts that can speak to these specialized subjects.”
