Held in high esteem for its original and focused commentary on news and issues affecting international transport and trade, FTW has developed its reputation over 46 years by maintaining a high standard of journalism, engaging deeply with the trade, and ensuring red-hot news with a weekly frequency.
Our audience is selected by sending individualised copies to SA’s largest importers and exporters as our core distribution focus. As a secondary audience we reach the freight industry as the biggest movers of goods. In addition copies are distributed at some airports to extend our reach to new and interested readers. Our publication is also distributed online through our sister publication FTW Online, enhancing our distribution further.
Approximately 4 000 copies of Freight & Trading Weekly are distributed weekly, with research showing that FTW is passed through on average 12 hands at a business. This we believe is due to our quick-read format ensuring even busy people have time to catch up on industry news, while our relevant coverage of matters is important to business decision-makers.
Who is the FTW reader?
FTW is read primarily by import and export decision-makers who comprise more than 50% of our reader base. Our circulations department puts enormous effort into growing readership and ensuring a high standard of reader for this vital segment.
