The newsroom at DC Velocity is a fun place to earn a living, if you don't mind a little hard work and the occasional long hours. We take pride in covering the changes and developments that are sweeping across the logistics, transportation, and distribution landscape.
The job is rewarding enough on its own, but by golly, it's also nice to earn a shiny journalism prize now and then. This June, we were honored to take home four awards at the annual meeting of the New England Chapter of the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).
Our editorial team was presented with the bronze regional award for "Regrets, recriminations, diversions: The legacy of bad times at West Coast ports," a feature in our April 2015 issue by Executive Editor - News Mark Solomon. Solomon won another bronze award for "Now comes the hard part," a February 2015 online news story about the challenges facing Western ports after the labor standoff was resolved.
We won a third bronze award for our "Newsworthy" section, a monthly compilation of news stories written by Solomon and Senior Editor Ben Ames. Our fourth award went to our sister publication, CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly. Editor Toby Gooley took home the bronze prize for her columns "The high cost of not caring" from the Q3 2015 issue and "As you rise, you must lift" from the Q4 2015 issue.
