Resources & Publications

IAM communicates with its members and stakeholders using every medium. The most frequent communications are through the bi-weekly e-Portal newsletter, the bi-weekly eGov/Mil newsletter (and companion blog on the IAM Social Cafe), the IAM-YP On the Move newsletter, and through e-Blasts when the information is need-to-know for the membership.

Our website communications, including IAMovers.org and the Annual Meeting website, strive to answer all members' questions about the Association and its products and services; provide industry news and a calendar of events; and up-to-date information about membership services.

As you go through the items listed here, one product we are very proud of is one that members also contribute to: the Shipper Guides. These country-specific customs guides are constantly updated, and much of the information comes from IAM’s Core Members Management Board and other members who inform us of changes in their areas of the world.

Write for The Portal

The Portal regularly builds issues around themes, some of which are suggested by IAM members. Past topics popular among our readers include Women in the Industry, Family-Owned Businesses, Couples in Charge, Member Milestones, Logistics, Containers and Packaging, and Travel Tips. Themes and submission guidelines for upcoming issues are announced in The Portal, via email, and on the website. We welcome your theme ideas and article submissions.
