NEWARK, N.J., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Journal of Commerce has published its Annual Review and Outlook, the supply chain business-to-business media outlet's largest and most important publication of the year, and launched a corresponding set of pages on its industry-leading Web site, www.joc.com.
The Annual Review and Outlook is a comprehensive analysis of what supply chain interests can expect in the year ahead, based on what the industry learned in 2012. It includes an exclusive, in-depth examination of all areas of the JOC's regular coverage – international container shipping, trucking, rail, regulation, third-party logistics, supply chain management and air cargo – delivered daily on its Web site and biweekly in its award-winning magazine by an unmatched team of logistics journalists.
The centerpiece of the coverage is the JOC's 5th Annual Shippers Roundtable, a wide-ranging interview with three importers and exporters – Patrick Halloran, director of global trade and logistics at Cardinal Health; Steve Harmon, vice president of transportation at Kimberly-Clark; and Mark Widner, director of international transportation and customs at Dal-Tile – about the challenges and opportunities in the year ahead. To read the Shippers Roundtable, see http://www.joc.com/economy-watch/us-economy-news/dangling-cliff-shippers-roundtable_20130103.html.
The Annual Review and Outlook also includes more than 150 short commentaries from industry executives about the challenges they see in the international trade and supply chain arenas in 2013, and exclusive data that helps illustrate the direction of international and domestic freight transportation.
