The IARW Board has recently completed a search for a successor to John Horvath to ensure a smooth transition as John approaches retirement. The IARW Board has approved Scopelitis Garvin Light Hanson & Feary (Scopelitis) as a new Service Partner for warehouse legal assistance. The International Refrigerated Transportation Association (IRTA), a core partner of the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), maintains a service partnership with Scopelitis focused exclusively on transportation and the IARW Board approved the addition of warehouse legal assistance to that agreement. Under this new aspect of the service partnership, members of IARW can engage with Scopelitis lawyers (at no cost) to help them understand if they need legal support with their warehouse related issues. If it is determined that legal assistance is needed, IARW (and IRTA members) will receive a 10% discount on Scopelitis rates - if they decide to use them as their legal representation. Scopelitis will also supply IARW members with contract templates and reviews as well as provide content for IARW publications and events. Horvath & Weaver will continue to provide legal services to IARW and its members until John’s retirement. IARW members who prefer to use warehouse legal expert John Horvath are still able to do so.
