NEWARK, N.J., Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Journal of Commerce announced Tuesday it was honored with three "Tabbie" awards for excellence in business-to-business reporting by Trade Association Business Publications International.

The honors included a top "gold" award for editorial writing and awards for the trade and logistics publication's annual report on the United States' Top 100 Importers and Exporters and a special report on the shift in low-cost manufacturing within Asia.

"These awards are important and well-deserved recognition of a publishing business and a staff of reporters, editors and analysts that are bringing unmatched insight and analysis to the world of trade and shipping," said Christine Oldenbrook, publisher of The Journal of Commerce, a unit of UBM Global Trade and its parent company, UBM LLC.

Taking the editor's column gold award, "Energy Leaders" addressed the shipping community's concern with energy regulation and its impact on shipping, trade and the U.S. economy. Editorial Director Paul Page looked at changes around the world that would affect American business, citing the findings of an Ernst & Young report on China's renewable-energy investment, in what judges called, "a great call to action for our energy leaders."

The Journal of Commerce annual Top 100 Importers and Exporters won the bronze among special sections for its "excellent use of exclusive research (and) … useful outlook information." Using data from JOC sister company PIERS and other industry sources, the ranking report also included predictions for consumer behavior and container shipping volumes and reports on various commodity groups, providing a comprehensive body of information for its readers.

Senior Editor Peter Leach's June 14 cover story, "Asia's Supply Chain Shift," addressing manufacturing's move to Vietnam in Asia took honorable mention among the top B2B feature stories of 2011. It examined economic trends behind Vietnam's growth as well as the opportunities, such as potential for deeper, regional supply-chain changes, to be balanced by infrastructure challenges.
