Meet Josh Newton, Logistics Manager at Allied Eagle Supply Co. 

Josh will be celebrating his 1-year Anniversary as a WERC member in February.  

Why did you join WERC?

The ower of our company Allied Eagle Supply suggested it.  

Are there services WERC could provide that would add more value to your membership?

I liked the webinar that I tuned in on yesterday afternoon (2016: Time to Align (Benchmarking and Metrics)).  I think more webinar's would be beneficial.  

Josh recommended and WERC answered.  We will be holding more webinars in 2016. 
Check the Solutions at WERC web page for the next scheduled event. 

Do you have any comments you would like to share with WERC and members? 

At least for myself, I think it becomes very easy to sort of forget about even being a member of WERC. Day to day things I run into just takes all of my attention and time, and makes it easy to forget that there is probably a very useful resource (WERC) available to look into. I think it could be a good idea if there were like a monthly email blast of any new information WERC has available, or maybe like issues that logistics professionals run into, and steps one would take to deal with the issues or obstacles. Just basically like a newsletter. I think just having something like that alone could almost remind myself and maybe other people that WERC is there, and it’s probably a good idea to log on once in a while to check out what’s happening. 

We here at WERC thought an email to remind members of their benefits would be a great idea.  Watch your emails for a quick short monthly email that is for members only highlighting the benefits of your membership.  

So, what's your story?
