Since 1891, the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) has been the resource for warehouse logistics, advocacy and education. Members of the IWLA are specialized companies that provide a wide range of warehouse-based third-party logistics operations and value-added services in North America. The association serves nearly 500 corporate members representing more than 3,000 warehousing locations.

In 2000, IWLA partnered with Artex, one of the world's fastest-growing and most diverse insurance managers, to develop customized programs that solve members' risk management needs. These sustainable alternative risk management solutions help members prepare for the unexpected while moving forward with confidence to greater profitability.
