FlyingTypers King of Supply Chain Editors

Flying Typers Senior Editor Mike ‘Sky’ King was awarded the 2016 Seahorse Supply Chain “Journalist of the Year” Trophy in London in December from Gillian Smyth, Director of Marketing & Strategy at the American Bureau of Shipping.

     SkyKing beat off global competition for the award from both the trade and mainstream press,
Mike impressed the judges with this “thorough dissection of Amazon’s investments in its supply chain capability in a series of articles for Air Cargo News/Flying Typers earlier this year.

Here Comes The Judge

     “Judges commended Mike on his comprehensive insight into Amazon’s investment plans. The quality of his writing was good and the research was strong,” said MC Julian Pryke, director of Meantime Communications.

Stiff Competition

     In 2016 the Seahorse Awards, the 14th in the organization’s 53-year history, attracted 162 entries from 61 journalists based across three continents and was evaluated by a panel of 20 industry judges.
     “I am honored to receive this Supply Chain award from my peers and the esteemed panel of judges,” said Mike.
     “As journalists we are only as good as our contacts, so I’d like to thank the many people who have helped me better understand the fast-changing nature of the supply chain business this year.

Big Sky of Thanks

     “And huge thanks to Flying Typers’ Geoffrey Arend, a true legend in the air cargo industry, for all his support over the years and for giving me the platform to freely explore the issues that I believe matter – or should matter – to those in the air cargo industry.
     “And also to Reby Baldoz for her amazing research skills which have helped make so many articles in 2016 far better than they otherwise would have been.”
     Mike was also shortlisted for the Air Cargo Journalist of the Year Award and the 2016 Environmental Journalist of the Year Award at this year’s Seahorse ceremony.

One More Time

     Previously Mike was named 2013 Seahorse News Journalist of the Year and 2012 Air Cargo Journalist of the Year. He was also shortlisted for the 2010 Seahorse Feature Journalist of the Year award and the 2015 News Journalist of the Year award.
