ILN Logistics Board (Log Board)
IAM's primary goal with the ILN is to connect our members with new sources of business. To accomplish this, IAM is launching the ILN Log Board where we will post business opportunities from different sources.
If your company is bidding on logistics business and have a question, post it on the Log Board. Also, if your company has won a logistics project and you need a partners overseas, post it on the Log Board to see if a fellow ILN Member can help out.

Quick Links: Logistics News and Education
Russia and China plan to spend $3 billion to build two rail corridors aimed at encouraging the movement of containerized freight from the northeastern provinces of China to Russia's Far-East ports.

The "new normal" for the sector is tougher than for many other industries. Here's how transportation and logistics businesses can increase their economic profit.

One of the great things about the internet is the availability of free resources. One such resource is the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) class on Logistics and Supply Chain Fundamentals, which you can use for yourself or your employees. 

IAM members can receive daily industry news stories through an email subscription. Just enter your email on the IAM newsfeed webpage on the IAM website and have relevant news delivered to your inbox every day. 

Highlight Your Company in The Portal Magazine
Have you completed a logistics project with another ILN member? Another IAM member? 

Tell us about the project and we'll print it in an upcoming edition of The Portal Magazine providing your company with free promotion. 

Contact Brian Limperopulos at brianl@iamovers.org to submit an article.  

Reminder to Use ILN Logo
IAM encourages all ILN members to incorporate the Logistics Network's new logo into your marketing materials, business cards, and email signatures to show that you are logistics professionals. This logo design captures the international element of logistics through the incorporation of the globe, and the gears represent the diverse - and often interconnected - nature of the logistics sectors. 

The logo's shape is reminiscent of a key, and the tagline, "The Key to Success in Logistics," spells out what we all strive for in the ILN. 
The logos can be downloaded on the ILN Community on the IAM Social Cafe. Just login and get started. If you've forgotten your username and password, please contact membership@iamovers.org.
