HLPFI joins DVV Media’s portfolio of leading publications

Effective immediately, DVV Media International has acquired Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding International (HLPFI).

HLPFI’s co-founders, Ian Matheson and Peter Edwards, said: “Documenting events in the project logistics sector over the last 11 years has been fascinating and in 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 an organisation that is totally committed to maintaining the publication's ethos whilst developing the HLPFI brand and product range.”

DVV Media International is the UK-based division of DVV Media, the publishing division of German media business Rheinische Post. The company’s portfolio of leading publications in the transport and logistics sector include: Deutsche Verkehrs Zeitung; Schiff und Hafen; Ship and Offshore; Air Cargo News; Motor Transport; Railway Gazette International; and Commercial Motor, among others.

DVV Media International’s managing director, Andy Salter, said that HLPFI is a logical fit within the company’s growing portfolio of products: “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 already 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 in the months ahead and we look forward to working with the HLPFI team and seeing this division develop strongly.”

All HLPFI staff members have transferred to DVV Media International as part of the takeover; HLPFI magazine will continue to be headquartered in the London Borough of Bromley.
