The Warehouse Advocacy Fund (WAF) of the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) has commissioned PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) to conduct a study of our industry’s economic impact, both direct and indirect, to the U.S. economy.
The 3PL warehouse industry is a vital part of the U.S. and Canadian economies in the form of jobs, labor, income, GDP, and taxes. The total economic contribution of the industry extends beyond its own employment of direct, indirect, and induced contributions. The goal of the study is to demonstrate to our industry’s current and future customers the value that the 3PL warehouse industry brings to them and their employees and will create a larger and louder voice with government regulators, Congressmen, Senators, state government regulators, and legislators, while raising industry awareness in trade publications and the press.
On March 21, IWLA will explore the results of the study of economic impact of the warehouse logistics industry during the 2017 IWLA Convention & Expo. To meet this time frame we need your support by Jan. 27.
This study is one of the most significant undertakings of the IWLA. We urge you to participate and ensure that your business is reflected in the study. The information you share in the survey will remain 100 percent CONFIDENTIAL. Only the aggregated results will be shared to or by IWLA. No individual company information will be available to anybody outside of PwC.
Your help is greatly appreciated and will benefit the 3PL warehouse industry for years to come. To gain access to the survey please contact Adam Block at ablock@IWLA.com or call 847.813.4698.
