Rolf Lockwood, an award-winning and highly respected and experienced trucking journalist, has a new monthly column in HDT as part of an arrangement that also will see an exchange of other content between two award-winning magazines.
Bobit Business Media and Newcom Business Media, publishers of Today's Trucking magazine in Canada, announced they are re-establishing an editorial partnership. This will begin with an exchange of information that will appear in both companies' magazines and websites.
"It's a partnership of two award-winning editorial teams," notes HDT Editor in Chief Deborah Lockridge. HDT's editors have won numerous Jesse H. Neal awards from American business Media, considered the "Pulitzer Prize" for business media, while last year, Today's Trucking was named the Best Trade Magazine in Canada by the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors.
As part of that partnership, Rolf Lockwood, vice president of editorial and editor in chief for Today's Trucking, will appear regularly in the pages of HDT as executive contributing editor. His new "Locking it in" column will run each month, offering his take on a variety of topics related to the buying, maintenance and use of trucks in North America.
Lockwood has been writing about trucks and trucking for 33 years. In 2012 he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Truck Writers of North America, his second such honor. In 2003, he was named by the Canadian Business Press Association as winner of the Harvey Southam Lifetime Editorial Achievement Award, a major prize given only occasionally. He has also won several gold and silver Kenneth R. Wilson Memorial Awards for journalism.
He is a member of the U.K.-based Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transportation and of the Technology and Maintenance Council of the American Trucking Associations.
