ILN Business Session at the 2018 IAM Annual Meeting


Block out your schedule for this important meeting on October 7 from 4 - 6 pm. At a minimum, there will be networking and a look at the latest features on how we are highlighting ILN Members on the IAM Mobility Exchange.


In addition, we want to highlight and discuss opportunities in the logistics business. Opportunities like disaster aid and relief logistics, final mile delivery, or hospitality logistics like the installation of furniture, fixtures and equipment at hotels, hospitals, etc. If you like these ideas or have any suggestions on what you would like to discuss or do at the ILN business session please let us know through this survey. It is only one question so it will take you a second and help us tailor the best possible program for ILN Members.


ILN Second Most Searched Term on IAM Mobility Exchange


There is a new unique dashboard feature available in the IAM Mobility Exchange (IAMX) that allows validated users to access aggregated search term information and analytics from the Directory. This year’s data reveals that “ILN Member Company” is the second most searched term on the directory. Other notable top 10 searches include “Validated” and “Logistic Services Company”.


To access the IAMX Dashboard, make sure you have validated your company’s listing on Mobility Exchange and that you are logged into the site.


Are you an ILN member but have yet to validate your listing for free? If so, you are missing out on the opportunity to appear in the results for these highly searched terms. Furthermore, you can gain access to this dashboard by validating your listing. Validate today!
