United Kingdom Warehouse Association: Established in 1944, when the Government of the day asked for representatives from warehousing companies to form a Committee to discuss the storage and distribution of food and materials in wartime Britain, the Association was originally known as the National Association of Inland Warehouse Keepers - a body formed to protect and further the interests of public warehouse keepers conducting businesses outside the major ports. The overwhelming majority of UKWA's members remain third party warehousing and logistics services companies, or 3PLs as they are perhaps better known, but the move to widen the Association's membership eligibility means that UKWA is now truly representative of the wider supply chain community. Their mission statement, "The UKWA offers a service to logistics service companies and any organisations that provide warehousing and other logistics support services in the supply chain. It does this by helping to establish a favourable operating environment, by providing a forum for discussion on non-competitive issues and by disseminating information to assist them in their business."
