Welcome to IWLA!

This website is your window to the world of warehouse logistics services. The site highlights the benefits and services available to IWLA members and the capabilities of our members who provide many value-added services for their customers. It also describes how warehouse logistics service providers positively impact the economy and everyday life.

IWLA has been in existence since 1891 and is the leading warehouse trade association. The nearly 500 member companies provide a wide range of logistics services including warehousing, transportation, value-added services, consulting and much more.

Our primary role is to help our members succeed in an increasingly challenging business environment. We reduce our members’ costs and increase their resources through programs, products and services that are exclusive to IWLA membership. IWLA also funds research and training programs to advance business practices of the warehouse logistics industry.

IWLA is devoted to communicating the value of outsourcing the warehousing function, and the many services that are provided by IWLA members. Countless time is spent each year crisscrossing the United States, Canada and other countries discussing the warehouse industry and the benefits of logistics outsourcing. IWLA is also a potent lobbying force with governmental entities, educating policy makers on industry-related issues.

If you have any questions or comments about IWLA or the warehouse logistics industry, please contact me at

Enjoy browsing the IWLA website and come back often!

My very best wishes,

Steve DeHaan CAE, IWLA President & Chief Executive Officer
