The 2022 RLA Leadership Summit took place in Nashville, Tennessee on September 7th and 8th. Representatives from Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS) were active participants in the event. Members spent time attending panels with industry leaders. Sean Magann, alongside representatives from PYXERA Global, FedEx, and WSP were panelists for “Industry Presentation & Reverse Logistics Industry Project,” a panel moderated by Ellie Jorgensen, Key Client Manager for PYXERA Global. The panelists discussed co-creating inclusive circular economy ecosystems at scale.
SLS also contributed to the Leadership Summit by hosting over 40 RLA members at our industry leading SLS Circular Center in La Vergne, Tennessee. Employees at the SLS Circular Center were prepared and excited to give our guests a warm welcome. Touring groups had the opportunity to see our broad capabilities including how we strategically reuse and redeploy IT assets and recover critical spare parts. Also of interest was our advanced recycling line that recovers key raw materials which can be used to make new equipment. The operating principle of the SLS Circular Centers is to prioritize reuse of whole IT assets and parts recovery over recycling. Extending the lifecycle of IT assets reduces the depletion of finite raw materials and achieves higher carbon reduction compared to recycling.
It was great to see members enjoy the summit and share SLS’s views and core values around supply chain. We look forward to meeting again at the 19th Annual RLA Conf & Expo Las Vegas 2023.
