Cleveland—Penton Media announced Friday that Material Handling Management magazine will change its name to Material Handling & Logistics. The change will take place with the September issue.
“The terminology of the market has changed in recent years,” Tom Andel, the magazine's editor in chief, said in a statement. “The Material Handling Industry of America—the trade group for material handling equipment manufacturers—now refers to ‘the material handling and logistics' market, recognizing the increasing importance and influence of logistics professionals working in both manufacturing and distribution.”
In conjunction with the change, the publication will increase its trim size to 8½-by-10¾ inches.
