AIT Attends RILA Tradeshow
In the third week of February, members of AIT's new Retail Logistics division traveled to Dallas, Texas and represented AIT Worldwide Logistics at the Retail Industry Leaders Association's (RILA) 27th annual Logistics Conference.
RILA is a trade association including more than 200 retailers, product manufacturers and service suppliers. The conference brings together retail and consumer product executives in logistics, transportation, distribution and supply chain management to learn from industry leaders about the latest innovations in supply chain and to network with their peers.
In addition to exhibiting on the conference's trade show floor, AIT representatives attended workshops and lectures including a presentation by Socialnomics author Erik Qualman and the keynote address by former NBA star Bill Walton.
Including such giants as Target and Wal-Mart, RILA members account for more than $1.5 trillion in annual sales, millions of American jobs and more than 100,000 stores, manufacturing facilities and distribution centers domestically and abroad.
