The former Distribution Business team has set up Spice Court Publications and launched a trade magazine called e.logistics.

The former Distribution Business team has set up Spice Court

Publications and launched a trade magazine called e.logistics.



The venture is part-owned by Chris Propert-Lewis, who left his sales and

marketing post at Distribution Business in December, along with editor

Peter Rowlands and two other members of staff.



The team had managed Distribution Business for a number of years,

working under contract after the title was sold to the German company

Deutscher Verkehrs-Verlag.



Its new publication is a controlled-circulation A4 title aimed at

decision-makers with supply chain or IT responsibility in manufacturing,

retail and logistics.



Last month’s launch issue comprised 52 pages and a had print run of

10,000.



Advertisers included logistics trade names such as MSAS, Symbol and

Synergy.



Rowlands said e.logistics was focusing on electronic supply chains in a

bid to differentiate itself from mainstream logistics titles such as

Haymarket’s Logistics Europe and DMG Business Media’s Distribution.



’Everyone knows how to set up a website but nobody knows how to deliver

goods from it. It’s a bit too soon to talk about readership figures but

the response has been favourable,’ he said.



Rowlands said Spice Court was not actively advertising for staff, but he

hoped to take on more sales people soon. He also said the company would

be considering further launches in the future.
