Top Free Articles 2022

As 2022 comes to a close, MDM is taking a look back at the content our readers engaged with most this year. We’ll start with our top free articles — which include work from MDM staff as well as contributors — and aren’t exclusive to MDM Premium subscribers. Note that while many of our most-viewed articles were posted prior to 2022 — including pieces that are over five years old — this list only accounts for articles that were published this year. 

In 2022, the wholesale distribution industry continued its shift towards digital sales, and our most-viewed articles reflected that. MDM readers were interested in eCommerce-related topics such as virtual B2B marketplaces, digital self-service purchasing methods and omnichannel sales. Our top articles also tackled ever-present industry challenges such as labor shortages, supply chain backlogs, inflation and pricing.

Here are MDM’s 25 most-viewed headlines from 2022:
