Training programs on labour management for refrigerated warehouses

Washington, DC, US: Labour is consistently one of the largest costs for refrigerated warehouse operators accounting for on average, 25.9% of revenues for North American warehoue operation, according to the 2012 IARW Productivity and Benchmarking Report.

The International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses is introducing a new regional training series focused on labor management to help warehouse operators reduce the cost of labor within their facilities,

The training programs will be held on 6 June in Atlanta, Georgia, US and on 20 June in Los Angeles, California, US.
Each program will be held 8:00am to 3:30pm and will include lunch and all course materials. The registration fee is US$395 for IARW and other GCCA core partner members and $495 for non-members.

The Labor Management Regional Training Programs will help refrigerated warehouse managers and supervisors better understand where labor costs originate and how to control them. Students will learn achievable ways to control costs and create opportunities for cost-savings within their facilities.

The Regional Training Programs are part of a new initiative from the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA). IARW is a core partner of GCCA. The initiative aims to increase accessibility to affordable cold chain training by offering one-day training programs led by industry experts in convenient locations around the United States. Class sizes are intentionally small to ensure students receive individual attention from trainers.
