Nothing stays the same, and that also goes for American Shipper
The 62-year-old publishing company, based in Jacksonville, Fla., has made a number of changes since the start of this year, which we would like to share with you on this page.
For starters, we have expanded our editorial and research staff, in addition to establishing partnerships with leading industry research firms, to bring you more insightful and data-rich analysis about freight transportation and supply chain management trends and developments.
We have expanded our cooperation with BlueWater Reporting to bring you more information about ocean carrier service changes, capacity and transits into American Shipper
’s analysis of this vital transportation sector. BWR has also developed a new general rate increase database that enables shippers to more efficiently follow those cost increases that carriers routinely propose for various liner trades.
On our website, we are adding a new video feature, called AS Insider, through which our editors will provide readers additional details about current and pending industry coverage. We will also continue to deliver enlightening content on the latest industry issues through in-depth special reports and highly attended webinars which include top industry representatives, analysts and government officials.
In addition, we continue to assist with organizing selective conferences, such as the Virginia Maritime Association’s annual International Trade Symposium, and our editors are routinely asked to moderate panel discussions and speak before industry groups.
To enhance American Shipper
’s mobility and subscriber access, we have launched both an iPad and Android application to read our content on tablet devices. The applications can now be downloaded from AmericanShipper.com
, but will be available soon from the Apple and Android stores. While American Shipper
may be viewed on smartphones, we will also have apps specifically tailored to these devices available this spring.
What hasn’t changed at American Shipper
is our foundational commitment to accurate and in-depth reporting about the latest freight transportation and supply chain management topics. No matter how our content delivery to subscribers changes with technological advances, you—the readers— can always count on that quality of American Shipper to remain the same.
