|For many years the International Warehouse Logistics Association has held an annual IT conference. This year the conference is being held in Chicago over Nov. 6-8. Details of the conference can be found here.
At $299 (IWLA Members) per attendee this educational event provides a fantastic ROI. Non-members are also welcome and I recommend the conference to you for your IT and operations staff.This event is for everyone in the warehouse who touches technology or oversees any aspect of operations. Of course, C-level executives who direct operations and technology employees will also reap benefits by attending. Be sure you’re there to network with these warehouse-based 3PL leaders and to learn more about the future of your trade association.
As a board member of the association I can attest to the value of both the association itself and the educational offerings provided for members. I look forward to seeing you, and your key IT and operations players, in Chicago in November.

If you want to know how your costs are structured and what opportunities exist for cost reduction, then Activity Based Costing (ABC) is the answer.
ABC allows you to understand your costs at an activity level and see a breakdown by type of expense for each activity (work phase or task). This breakdown is by a “production unit”, often referred to as a “cost center” (job or project). Hence, ABC is a three dimensional breakdown of costs by cost center, activity and account. This provides a level of detail that allows meaningful cost control decisions to be made.
Why is Payroll important as a source of ABC data?
