Looking Forward to a New Year

A year of change for the shipping industry, 2014 has brought us container carrier alliances and super-sized ships, along with a fragile economic recovery. As 2015 brings its own twists and turns, Cargo Business Newswire will continue to keep you informed of the latest industry news and trends, enhanced with original content.

Our number one goal is to provide news of interest to cargo owners and those along the supply chain that support them. To that end, starting in January, CBN Newswire will run an original article on a hot topic twice a month.

Every two weeks, transportation and trade journalist Bill DiBenedetto, our new features editor, will cover a timely issue in depth. A seasoned writer, editor and researcher, Bill previously served as editor at the Journal of Commerce and Pacific Shipper.

As many of you know, we’ve said our farewells to longtime CBN publisher and senior editor Peter Hurme, and wish him the best in his new endeavor.

Moving forward, I will be taking over the role of associate publisher, and Elaine Riot will serve as managing editor of the CBN Newswire. Our design team, Erin Downward and Patricia Woods, will maintain the look and delivery of newswire under the guidance of production head David Saldana. John Nordahl will continue to support our advertisers.

Please keep an eye out for our new feature stories and other newswire and online enhancements throughout 2015. In the meantime, the CBN team wishes you a warm holiday season and a very Happy New Year.

Best wishes,
Christie Daigle, Associate Publisher
