UKWA unveils new look

The United Kingdom Warehousing Association unveiled its new look at its annual lunch and awards, which took place at The Dorchester in London.

The association is also set to launch a new web site at the end of July as part of its corporate makeover, which will provide a warehouse search facility to connect buyers and seller of warehouse space.

Roger Williams, chief executive officer of the association, said: “We last changed our logo over ten years ago – since which our membership has been open to retailers and manufacturers as well as companies from outside the UK.

“We also have over 100 associate members – companies that supply products or service to the warehousing community.

“During the last 14 months, UKWA has undertaken a methodical strategic review of its role and its widening areas of interest.

“We aim to attract new companies and deliver more tangible benefits to our long standing members to ensure that more and more businesses see belonging to UKWA as vital to their ongoing success.”
