Ireland gets own warehousing association for first time

Claremorris, County Mayo, Ireland: Ireland’s third party storage and warehousing community has a trade body dedicated to its needs for the first time.

The United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) has launched The All Ireland Warehousing Association (AIWA), aimed at companies in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland that provide warehousing and other logistics support services in the supply chain. AIWA will be directly affiliated to UKWA and will be run from an office in Claremorris, County Mayo.

Roger Williams, UKWA’s chief executive  announced the launch of the AIWA at  a recent UKWA networking lunch held in County Down.

“The new organisation will be able to  properly serve the needs of the whole of the Irish warehousing and logistics sector,” said Williams. “We believe that an organisation affiliated to UKWA and working closely with us will provide a focus for this important sector.”

A dedicated website is in the process of being established and an executive steering group will be formed to take the new association forward.

Williams added: “Membership of AIWA will give companies the peace of mind to concentrate on their core business, confident in the knowledge that the association is representing their interests at all levels and keeping them updated and informed on news and developments covering a wide range of issues affecting the 3PL (third party logistics) sector.”
