Logistics Magazine

What is Logistics Magazine?

Logistics Magazine is a monthly publication that is sent to FTA members and senior business people working across the supply chain. It is packed with news, features and interviews, as well as useful information on compliance and legislation so crucial to the safety of all transport operations.

What kind of content does it contain?

Logistics Magazine tackles the big issues facing logistics, from technology and innovation to infrastructure and decarbonisation. It is one of the few publications to report on the industry across all modes – road, rail, sea and air.

What are the regular features?

One of the magazine’s regular features is a compliance advice section, where readers can discover more about key issues including agency drivers, the safe loading of vehicles and Clean Air Zones. Plus, there’s a regular ‘Headliners’ section, featuring the month’s must-read news stories.

What is its reach?

Logistics Magazine has a reach that rivals and exceeds that of many trade titles and offers a great way to access an often hard-to-reach audience.
