Mailed Subscription-Free to over 10,000 Retail Shipping Stores

RS News is considered to be the most comprehensive trade publication for our industry. As such, store owners look forward to receiving every issue and typically read it cover-to-cover. The magazine also has a long shelf-life as many of the articles remain relevant as reference materials for years.

If you are a supplier or vendor to the industry (or want to become one), RS News should be one of the key pieces of your marketing strategy. RS News reaches more Retail Shipping store owners than any other publication.
