The International Warehouse Logistics Association has announced a series of premier educational events focused solely on business growth and development for warehouse-based third-party logistics professionals. 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.”

The fall 2013 IWLA educational calendar covers the most critical issues facing these independent warehousing professionals. (For more information and to register, visit http://www.IWLA.com):.
