Inbound Logistics’ Planner contains in-depth profiles of 180 leading supply chain industry companies—detailing their mission, focus, services, and capabilities.
The iPad version of our annual Logistics Planner includes a built-in web browser, so you can tap any company's web link or logo and go directly to their site for more information without ever leaving the Planner app. Each profile also includes an e-mail link so you can send mail directly to a company using the iPad's native Mail app.
The app's built-in browser also provides access to Inbound Logistics’ exclusive online RFP service -- just tap the Inbound Logistics logo on any profile page -- through which you can detail your specific challenges and needs, specify services you're interested in, and request information from multiple companies at once.
The iPad Planner allows readers fast access to profiles by tapping for a drop-down, scrollable table of contents, swiping through thumbnails of profile pages in an overview mode, or dragging a playhead at the bottom of the screen. Profiles pages are designed in both vertical and horizontal orientations and adapt to whichever way you turn the iPad.
Because the iPad Planner is a completely electronic publication, it offers enhanced features such as embedded videos and slideshows that can't be offered in print. Slideshows run automatically, and videos play at the users discretion with a simple tap. A second tap reveals controls that allow videos to play in fullscreen mode, either vertically or horizontally.
Inbound Logistics is committed to delivering in-depth articles and targeted decision support resources to supply chain professionals in whatever way they prefer to consume content. The Logistics Planner is distributed in print in Inbound Logistics’ January issue each year, and is made available as a free downloadable PDF on InboundLogistics.com. Each Planner profile is also online, including many profiles enhanced with video. With the release of the iPad Planner, Inbound Logistics answers its audience's needs yet again by providing a tablet-optimized version of this invaluable resource.
