3S Media & Transport World Africa
3S Media is a modern-day media company offering print and online solutions for business communities. Founded in 1960 as Shorten Publications, it provides trade and business publications, newsletters and websites. The company has been in the print and media business for 55 years.
3S Media has become one of the largest business-to-business media houses in southern Africa. Its mission is to share information that will offer businesses and professionals from various spheres the leading edge to grow their vocations, disciplines and companies.
There are currently 8 print titles plus supplements in the publication stable. Many of these are produced in partnership with professional institutes. A number of the titles have been recognised for publishing and journalism excellence.
The name was changed to 3S Media in 2005, in order to embrace new developments in the publishing world and the company’s vision to add newsletters, websites and mobile media to its service offering. This was seen as a strategic expansion of Shorten Publications, with its 55-year track record of trade publication experience and excellence.
There are now four websites with accompanying weekly newsletters offering breaking news, upcoming events and latest industry developments.
Transport World Africa (TWA) covers complete intermodal transport and logistics management solutions, as well as the movement of freight throughout Africa. The bi-monthly B2B magazine is endorsed by the Federation of East and Southern African Road Transport Associations (FESARTA).
Since the end of 2012 both the magazine and website have grown and expanded to include key relevant information for both transporters and logistics providers not only in South Africa, but in SADC countries as well as East Africa. TWA covers the news and events which make this an exciting continent to be doing business with. It is our vision to make this website a portal for transport operators and logistics providers looking for key relevant information to do business in Africa as their first port of call.
