RL Hot Spot of the Year!

We’re just returning from our major conference of the year in Las Vegas. Our content could not have been better, over 70 interesting panel discussions, workshops and presentations by academics and industry leaders on every subject of RL that you could think of. Networking on the golf course, awards banquet and the evening receptions made for productivity of developing business relationships.

The highlights of our conference was the introduction of the RLA Label Standard using a modified QR code scanner by the Standard Committee and the progress report on the RL Certification Committee. The article on page 30 of this edition talks about eyestrain which can be totally be eliminated if we implement an optical scanning program at receiving inspection. Make sure you take a peek at the research and this labeling initiative that was introduced for Secure Quick Report for Reverse Logistics or sQRrl code (pronounced “squirrel code”). If you want to upgrade your training experience make sure that you are involved with the RL Certification Committee as they move towards launching this standard for achieving excellence in reverse logistics.

At our Awards Gala, so many deserving individuals receive recognition for years of service to the Reverse Logistics Association and for improving RL overall. Two companies received the Reverse Logistic Association Excellence Awards – Intel and Genco.



Make sure that you don’t miss out on these networking events in cities this year; New Delhi, Sao Paulo, Paris and Atlanta.

We want to thank all our members who made our conference in Las Vegas and success I look forward to the initiatives that each of our committees are working on for the coming year.

Best Regards,
