Kestronics are pleased to announce that we are now an associate member of UKWA (United Kingdom Warehousing Association).
As Britain’s leading trade organisation for the logistics sector with over 900 members, UKWA (United Kingdom Warehousing Association), provides a powerful voice for the industry.
The UKWA help members operate safely, ethically and profitably, safeguarding industry standards and ensuring their views are represented clearly and effectively to government.
First established when representatives from warehousing companies formed a Committee to discuss the storage and distribution of food and materials in wartime Britain. Originally known as the National Association of Inland Warehouse Keepers – its role was to protect and further the interests of public warehouse keepers operating outside the major ports.
After the war, the Association’s name was changed as many members by then were operating facilities within the ports as well as ‘Inland’.
National Association of Warehouse Keepers merged with the British Public Warehouse Keepers Committee, further strengthening the Association’s base.
The Association celebrated its 50th Anniversary and changed its name again to the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA).
UKWA changes status to Limited by Guarantee.
New UKWA logo developed.
UKWA adds new Logistics Users category to membership.
UKWA celebrates 75th Anniversary.
