About FTD magazine
FTD has grown from its freight, transport and distribution roots to its current status as a magazine dedicated to supply chain management solutions. Whether it’s forktrucks or container handlers, shelving or racking, labelling or RFID, automation or materials handling, rail or road, sea ports or airfreight, we showcase the current products and services.
Published every two months, FTD’s emphasis is unashamedly on New Zealand. However, we also keep an eye on developments in Australia and within the Asia-Pacific region. With three features per edition (see following) plus general news and views, FTD aims to inform and provoke discussion on a wide range of supply chain management issues. FTD sources industry news from government agencies, key industry players, and a number of business associations, including CILT (the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport), CBAFF (Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Federation of NZ), Export New Zealand, Importers Institute, the NZ Cold Storage Association, IFA (International Forwarders Association), NZISCM (NZ Institute of Supply Chain Management), BARNZ (Board of Airline Representative of NZ), GS1 NZ, and IIR (Intermodal International Repairers).
Our target audience
Decision-makers at a senior management level involved in materials handling, warehousing,
logistics and technology, packaging, freight forwarding and distribution. FTD is distributed to a
wide range of industries, including shipping, cargo storage, general manufacturing, printing and
engineering, transport, building and timber products, automotive distribution and machinery, and
food, beverage and pharmaceuticals.
Every business has a supply chain – essentially a flow of resources from site of production through intermediate locations to the site of final use – and FTD is an integral part of this chain.
FTD is the only magazine in New Zealand targeting supply chain/ materials handling/warehousing and logistic issues, and people in decision-making or decision-influencing positions. FTD is therefore a powerful advertising medium, not only to promote products and services, but also for branding purposes. By combining the traditional acceptability of FTD magazine with the power of the internet, advertisers can now improve the cost-efficiency of their expenditure. This website compliments the magazine, and adds a direct response capacity for advertisers.
By subscribing, you’ll be assured of being kept informed of key issues and events. If you’re a decision-maker, or in a decision-influencing position, within the warehousing, transport or materials handling industries, FTD is a ‘must read’.FTD is published by
