Following a recent investment round, Welsh Independent publisher Business News Wales has announced the launch of a specialist news channel for the transport and logistics sector in Wales.
Set to launch early spring the new platform aims to increase digital connectivity and communication, in an industry that currently has no dedicated media support.
Regular expert columnists, a monthly podcast, an industry newsletter together with job vacancies and events are just some of the features that are set to hit the desks of leaders of this transforming industry.
Beth Perry, Transport and Logistics Sector Editor said:
“As the news industry continues to diversify we felt that the transport and logistics sector in Wales was poorly covered in the media, at a time when digital connectivity and transparency online has never been so important. Now is the right time to support this growing industry.
“Having watched this sector over the last 12 months, its clear to see that there are some really exciting developments in transport and logistics in Wales, and this new platform will help to strengthen Wales’ position as a leader in the industry.”
Mark Powney, MD, Business News Wales Commented:
“Building on the success of Business News Wales over the last 4 years, we felt it was the right time to invest in this sector. At a time when trusted news is so important, together with the changes that Brexit may bring, we could make a real difference in supporting the sector.
“Following a variety of market research campaigns it was clear the demand for a dedicated and trusted news channel for the transport industry was needed. Our recent investment round via Development Bank has enabled us to develop such niche industry news channels that will serve as invaluable news and information resource.
“Our expertise has told us that the creation of niche and specific channels is where the news market is headed and so we are catering to businesses and individuals alike who desire a one-stop-shop for transport-related information.”
