Hudson Logistics & Marketing Services

Hudson Logistics & Marketing Services (Hudson LMS) is a division of Hudson News Distributors (HND).

HND was founded by Isaac Cohen in 1918, originally known as the Bayonne News Company.   In 1947 Isaac’s son, Robert Cohen, began delivering magazines under the Hudson News Distributors banner.  In 1987 the first Hudson News store opened in LaGuardia Airport.  The expansive retail business was sold in 2008.  Today, HND and Hudson LMS are owned and operated by Robert’s son, James Cohen.

Hudson LMS was formed in 2016 based on the concept that “New Co.” could leverage “Old Co.’s” infrastructure, core delivery and retail merchandising skills, and vast East coast experience to create an extremely cost effective and efficient services option for a broader set of customers.

Hudson LMS provides a full suite of services in the areas of Logistics, Retail Merchandising & In-Store Marketing, and Truckside Advertising.  The company currently serves multiple consumer brands, product manufacturers, signage/display companies and retailers directly.  We also serve these same customers indirectly through relationships with third parties, including; Marketing Services Agencies, Magazine Publishers (Advertising Sales), Private Equity, and others.
