More shipping

Funny thing news. No sooner do you mention one piece of news from the world of shipping media than another pops up. There is a small Asian component in United Business Media's acquisition of the old Journal of Commerce group for $152 million.

The company, now known as Commonwealth Business Media, will apparently form a new division of UBM and not - for now anyway - be integrated into CMP. In Hong Kong, the company operates an outpost of its PIERS "Global Intelligence Solution". Some 88% of the group's revenues are, however, currently generated in the US. That looks like an opportunity waiting to be tapped.
