I’m always being asked, how is RLA doing? Well, sometimes I feel that we take two steps forward and one step back. Of course that makes sense; the step backwards is the REVERSE LOGISTICS PART. All kidding aside, I’ve been looking at all the data that we collect from our members, conferences and seminars and what I see is steady, yet significant growth over the years.

Here are just a few examples of the areas that I’m very proud of:
• 35 to 40 percent new speakers each year at our conferences.
• Look at the number of retailers that speak an increase every year.
• The same goes for OEMs
• Don’t forget about the academics they’re included with their studies that they have researched on reverse logistics

We’re now serving the Grocery industry which calls RL “unsaleables”, along with Security, Health Sciences, and the Automobile industry which knows RL as ReMan or remanufacturing.

Please take a look at the charts above. You can sense the growth that we’re seeing. We hope that you’ll join RLA this coming year for all the RL events, webinars, and committees that we have.
