IL Guest Editorial Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in Inbound Logistics. We welcome editorial submissions on supply chain topics—one submission per company per year.

Top 5 Editorial Guidelines

1. Please keep the article non-promotional. Your company name will be in your byline, not in the main body of the article.

2. Please watch the word count: approximately 650 words.

3. Please provide an author photo (color, high-res).

4. Please submit author contact info (name, title, company, phone number, and email address).

5. Know the audience angle: You are talking to supply chain professionals buying transportation, logistics, and technology solutions (i.e. manufacturers, distributors, and retailers).

Is there a deadline?

There is NO deadline. We accept guest editorials on a rolling basis. We try to publish guest editorials in the order we receive them, while remaining flexible for time-sensitive topics.

In about three to six months. Sorry for the long wait; we receive a large number of submissions.

Can I submit more than one article at a time?

Pace yourself! We don’t publish multiple submissions from any author/organization in the same 12-month period.

Can I request a specific issue placement or format (print, online, etc.)?

While we try our best to accommodate, unfortunately, the answer is no. We don’t make promises we can’t keep.
