Lloyd’s List becomes digital only
Shipping industry newspaper Lloyd's List will become a digital-only service on 20 December 2013.
Lloyd's List is published by Informa and started as a printed notice pinned to a coffee shop wall in London in 1734. Less than 2% of its readers now access its news and information in print only.
Richard Meade, editor, commented on the change on the publication's webite, lloydslist.com: "…We must also recognise that a digital platform offers new avenues and platforms for the richer delivery and more effective sharing of information…The decision follows many years of customer research and preparation and is – first and foremost – designed to ensure that the service continues to evolve with customer demand."
