Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding International added to DVV stable of magazines

DVV Media International Ltd, the publisher of Air Cargo News, has acquired Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding International (HLPFI), the leading magazine and website serving the logistics sector for over-dimensional and/or heavy cargoes.
“This is an important acquisition for us at DVV,” said managing director Andy Salter. “At present, we publish a number of market-leading transport and logistics titles covering the road, rail, shipping and aviation sectors.
“HLPFI covers a niche, but essential part of the infrastructure supply chain, has a powerful international audience and has huge potential for growth.
“The DVV events division has been working with the HLPFI team on the development and launch of the Heavy Lift Awards event, which will take place in October 2019. We fully expect to announce further developments for the business and brand in the months ahead and we look forward to working with the HLPFI team and seeing this division develop strongly.”
HLPFI’s co-founders Peter Edwards and Ian Matheson said: “Documenting events in the project logistics sector over the last 11 years has been fascinating and one thing has been strikingly apparent – the sector, in the face of adversity, has proven itself resilient, versatile and innovative.
“Over that time we have developed a publication and website that has an excellent reputation among its audience.
“With prospects for the heavy lift and project logistics sector improving, we believe that the time is right to hand over the reins to a larger organisation which is totally committed to maintaining the publication’s ethos whilst developing the HLPFI brand and product range.”
All HLPFI staff are transferring to DVV Media International as part of the takeover; the magazine will continue to be headquartered in the London Borough of Bromley.
