Not your father’s American Shipper
For 35 years, the printed American Shipper has graced the desks of many executives in charge of freight transportation, logistics management and regulatory compliance, and for more than a decade the publication has similarly provided readers with daily industry news by e-mail.
While this model has served us and our readers well, it's no excuse for not developing new ways and means to deliver content.
The reality is that the reader dynamic within the shipping industry has evolved from one exclusively reliant on the printed word to another that prefers to receive news in an electronic format.
We at American Shipper understand this change, and have spent the past month working diligently on the launch of our new Web site, www.AmericanShipper.com. It's our goal to provide you, the reader, with richer access to timely news stories, features, op-eds, and comprehensive shipping industry analysis.
We have also made some changes to the printed American Shipper in order to improve the reader experience. For example, we have introduced 'On Second Thought ' ,' a monthly column brought to you by a select group of experts from the shipping, trade and regulatory environments, and throughout the publication we point up to the reader where to find additional content on AmericanShipper.com.
In addition, we'll continue to provide you timely and important news daily through our Shippers' NewsWire, again making it easier for readers to reach back to the Web site for additional details.
Now what hasn't changed at American Shipper, instilled in us many years ago by founder David Howard, is our commitment to accurate and in-depth reporting about your industry.
