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.
