ROGER HAILEY has been appointed Editor of Air Cargo News. Roger has been writing about freight and logistics for 30 years, most recently as editor of Containerisation International, part of the Lloyd’s List Group.

During his 18 years at the group Roger held a variety of senior roles, including news editor of Lloyd’s List international daily newspaper, as well as Brussels correspondent for EU transport affairs, and ports & logistics editor, covering all modes in the supply chain.

He began his career in journalism at Heathrow Airport with an international news agency and he also worked for Air Cargo News in the 1980s. Roger moved to International Freighting Weekly (IFW) in 1987, covering the global express parcels market and airfreight before being promoted to editor, a role he held for six years.

 “It is great to be able to focus on airfreight again,” says Roger. “Global supply chains are constantly evolving and trade journalism needs to reflect these changes. Readers are now looking for data and analysis alongside industry news about people and services.”

Air Cargo Media Ltd publisher, Sheena Rennie says: “the world of business publishing is changing rapidly, with the emergence of new online and digital information channels. We are delighted to welcome Roger to the Air Cargo team, strengthening our editorial coverage and freeing up Nigel Tomkins to focus on his role of Managing Editor”.
