    Welcome to DC VELOCITY. READERSHIPThe volume of business information available to todays logistics executives can be overwhelming. Thats why earning their trust as the markets most reliable and useful source of information is critical to a magazines success.

    Our editorial mission is a key differentiator for DC VELOCITY. As silos within the logistics industry disappear and organizations take a unified approach to managing transportation and material handling operations, DC VELOCITYs comprehensive approach to covering the U.S. logistics market aligns with this shift in supply chain management. While other logistics magazines are often exclusively focused on transportation or material handling, our approach earns lasting reader loyalty by delivering all the information they need in a direct, superb resource for logistics business intelligence.

    DC VELOCITY has emerged as the premier publication in several important readership surveys and studies thanks to the strength of its brand, editorial and design teams. In surveys conducted among attendees at trade shows like ProMat and annual conferences held by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC), and National Industrial Transportation League, respondents rated DC VELOCITY the best.*

    When you think logistics, think DC VELOCITY.We look forward to building a successful partnership in 2016.

    AUDIENCE DC VELOCITYs audited circulation covers a combination of corporate-level executives, on-site directors and vice presidents of logistics operations. Why all three? In a typical company, decision makers at one level of an operation recommend and specify a project, with decision makers at another level par-ticipating in the final sign off. This blended audience puts DC VELOCITY above the other logistics magazines in the scope of its market coverage and assures advertisers that messages reach the complete buying team.
