Tech/Ops Preview: Save Money and Green the Supply Chain

warehouse-energyThe Nov. 12-14, 2014, IWLA Technology & Operations for Warehousing Solutions Conference covers a variety of topics that will help operations and IT professionals develop leaner operations and heighten efficiency. Clark Reed, national program manager, ENERGY STAR® Commercial Buildings, will share information learned through more than 16 years of experience on energy during the operations. His breakout session is “ENERGY STAR: How EPA is Helping Warehouse Owners/Operators Conserve Energy, Save Money, and Green the Supply Chain.”

“For the past two decades, ENERGY STAR has provided the commercial and industrial building industries with proven, best-practice strategies for improving the energy performance of their properties,” Reed says.

This session’s goal is to help warehouse operators identify problem areas and opportunities (many of which are easily implemented and cost effective) to make energy-efficient improvements in their facilities. Reed will build a business case for these changes and highlight case studies of successful approaches used by others in the warehouse logistics industry. The session will take a brief look at ENERGY STAR’s complimentary online benchmarking tool as well.

“Attendees will be able to articulate the opportunities for energy performance improvement in warehouse properties, including specific best practices that have already been implemented by industry leaders. They will leave with new tools and resources to guide them through the process,” Reed says.

The IWLA Tech/Ops conference includes sessions with experts who will discuss the latest industry trends and challenges and an expo with the best and most innovative technology and operations suppliers. Register now for the Nov. 12-14 event in Chicago, Ill. Discount rates expire Oct. 25.
