Are you all set for the Tech/Ops ?

For many years the International Warehouse Logistics Association has held an annual IT conference. The 2015 ‘IWLA Technology & Operations Solutions for Warehousing Conference’  is for everyone in the warehouse who touches technology or oversees any aspect of operations. C-level executives who direct operations and technology employees will also reap benefits by attending.  

For IWLA Members or non-members this educational event provides a fantastic ROI. The opening reception brings together the IWLA Board of Directors with attendees. Be sure you’re there to network with these 3PL leaders and to learn more about the future of your trade association. Details of the conference can be found here.

As a partner of the association and Vice President of Sales at Argos Software, I will be attending the event and we will be offering a 10% discount on Abecas Insight WMS valid for a year. Come by our booth and bring your business card. I look forward to seeing you, and your key IT and operations players, in Dallas.

The 2014 ‘IWLA Technology & Operations Solutions for Warehousing Conference’ is being held in Chicago over Nov. 12-14. 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.  Details of the conference can be found here.

At $399 (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.

ABECAS Insight is a powerful solution developed for 3PLs, allowing scalability and access to real time information. We offer visibility for your internal & external partners, integration to other systems and configuration to your own business processes.

All about your warehouse + your people!

Join the IWLA Annual Convention + Expo held in Phoenix from March 23rd through 25th

For those who are members of this association, you already realize the value proposition membership delivers. If you are not a member, I would recommend you visit www.iwla.com and consider the benefits of membership. I would like you all to consider attending this high value event.

Argos has been a Partner Member of this body for 2 decades. Some 7 years ago we seriously considered dropping our membership because we questioned the value proposition for us. On reflection I decided the problem was not with the association, but with us. We joined the association, exhibited at the annual convention and expected benefits to flow from that. No really significant benefits followed and so we questioned our membership.

At that time I decided we needed to be more proactive in our approach. I joined a number of committees, looked at the services offered (usually at no charge to members) and began to leverage our membership. The value proposition changed significantly and today I hold a seat on the board.

The key factor in this change has been recognizing the value of involvement. This is equally true for the warehouse members as it is for us as partner members. Networking with your peers, examining and benchmarking best practices, taking opportunities in the areas of education and legal positioning in staffing and contracts, having your voice heard in political forums are all available to you. Finding skilled employees in the career center, highlighting your existence and capabilities in the Logistics Services Locator for prospective customers and extending your reach through collaborative efforts with other members are just some of the benefits the active members are enjoying.

I look forward to seeing you in Phoenix.

 

In today’s competitive marketplace, we need all the advantages we can leverage for success.

This association provides far more advantage than even many members realize.

 

 

 

Best Regards,

3PLs face slowing growth in 2014!

Portrait of the 3PL Market

How have your operations emerged from 2013?
A recent article from Richard Armstrong – chairman & CEO of supply chain research and consulting firm Armstrong & Associates – has revealed major trends for 2014 and offers a first-hand look into the state of today’s logistics operations: 
  • Globally the 3PL market has grown to $704 billion
  • 36 % of the market is located in Asia-Pacific
  • North American market represents 25%
  • Domestic transportation management has been very successful: managers have developed efficient models such as separating carrier capacity procurement from sales management
  • Market growth in 2014 should be in the 5% range
