- Aligned with shippers, carriers, warehouse operators, material handling equipment manufacturers, consultants, or any other similar industrial grouping.
- An organization that engages in matters where various members have contrary interests.
- An organization that endorses, sanctions, or discourages logistics-related legislation, products, or services.
