About Clark Holdings Inc.

Clark Holdings, Inc. provides non-asset based transportation and logistics services primarily to the print media industry throughout the United States and between the United States and other countries.

The company conducts its domestic operations through its subsidiaries, Clark Distribution Systems, Inc. (CDS) and Highway Distribution Systems, Inc. (HDS), and its international operations through its subsidiary, Clark Worldwide Transportation, Inc. (CWT).


Domestic Nationwide Distribution Services

Through CDS, the company provides domestic newsstand magazine distribution services throughout North America. CDS operates a ‘hub-and-spoke’ network of operating centers and professional traffic management services, which provide publishers and printers with the benefits of scheduled delivery by shipping in a consolidated weekly pool managed by CDS. Services provided include pick-up at printing plants; break-bulk and sorting of individual wholesaler orders by title; consolidation of multiple titles to common wholesaler delivery points; and preparation of manifests, advance shipping notices, and completion of shipment notifications to national distributors. On average, CDS delivers approximately 35 million magazines and books per week from approximately 90 print locations to wholesalers across North America.

CDS serves as a link between magazine printers/publishers and wholesalers, whose responsibilities include distributing magazines to retailers for public consumption. In this role, CDS is responsible for various aspects of distribution, including shipment pickup, consolidation and final delivery to wholesalers.

Domestic Regional Distribution Services

Through HDS, the company provides time-critical ground-based transportation services to the print media industry. The company’s services include the transportation of specialized media products, such as magazines, mass market books, newspaper inserts, drop ship mail, and motion picture film. HDS’ network includes the management of 6 distribution centers and relationships with approximately 600 third-party transportation providers through CDS. In addition, HDS has an agreement with a third party carrier to provide motor carrier services to HDS for the transportation of goods. Under the agreement, the third party carrier manages the fleet of 40 company-leased tractors and 76 company-leased and 18 company-owned trailers and uses this fleet in providing the motor carrier services.

HDS’ core business is providing traditional ‘break-up’ services for printers and publishers in regions surrounding the six distribution centers. The break-up service is similar to a regional LTL (less-than-truckload) service, where freight is picked up from a customer, transported to one of the HDS distribution centers, pooled with other shipments headed in similar proximities and sent to final destinations. Through the six distribution centers that it manages, HDS provides break-up services in selected lanes throughout New England, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Rocky Mountain, southwest, and southeast regions of the United States.

International Freight Forwarding

Through CWT, the company offers consolidation and import/export transportation management and logistics services to print media publishers, distributors and to their respective import partners worldwide. CWT utilizes four distribution centers to consolidate shipments and arrange for international transportation utilizing third-party carriers (air, ocean, or ground). CWT’s geographic footprint encompasses the majority of the economically developed and English-speaking overseas markets.

CWT’s primary functions are break-bulk and sortation of various individual titles and then consolidation into single consignee specific shipments, with the company providing commercial invoices and detailed packing list as an agent for the export distributors. Once the sortation and assembly process is completed, CWT then takes on the role of an international freight forwarder – scheduling and booking freight with air and ocean carriers to ship to the import wholesalers who then effect retail distribution in the local marketplace they serve. Consolidation activities take place at one of its three distribution centers located near international freight gateways (Wayne, New Jersey; Wilmington, California; Atlanta, Georgia; and Laredo, Texas).

CWT is responsible for providing break-bulk of various magazine titles per data supplied electronically in advance and uploaded into CWT’s information technology system and then CWT consolidates the multiple individual titles into one bulk order packed by consignee for shipment (usually weekly) via air and or ocean. At the distribution center, CWT employees pool the customer’s shipments with other shipments headed to similar locations. Once load space has been maximized, CWT arranges for the international movement of the consolidated load.


The company is organized along three divisions that address the individual needs of its customers. The customers of CDS consist primarily of publishers and printers that have smaller quantities and require national distribution. HDS focuses primarily on publishers and printers with regional distribution needs. CWT focuses entirely on publishers and printers that require international distribution (and international import distributors of this product that need a U.S. consolidation and forwarding company).


CDS’ primary competition is the ‘in-house’ distribution arms of the major printers, such as R.R. Donnelley and Quad Graphics (which acquired World Color).


Clark Holdings, Inc. was founded in 1957.

SWOT Analysis

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.

PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.

Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
