Print Advertising

The one-stop resource for supply chain intelligence

Print remains a vital component in brand positioning and awareness for integrated B2B marketing campaigns. CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly provides the best, most engaging print environment to help advertisers attain their marketing goals.

Supply Chain Quarterly provides unparalleled thought leadership in all aspects of international and domestic supply chain operations. Supply Chain Quarterly offers an exceptional editorial lineup with targeted, credible content to grab and hold the attention of key decision-makers. What does that mean for marketers? Engaged readers are more responsive to e-marketing initiatives and pay more attention to advertisements. This translates into marketing messages that are heard—and responded to—at a higher rate than with other media brands.
