Print media delivery specialists Menzies Distribution has opened a new, 24-hour ‘newstrade hub’ in Inverness that is designed to manage magazine deliveries and returns for retailers.
Before the hub was opened, newstrade retailers used to use a Menzies Distribution unit that handled both newstrade and parcel deliveries. This new site will be 100% newstrade and is there to meet just-in-time delivery deadlines.
Menzies currently distributes some 30 million newstrade products a week and makes approximately 25,000 retail drops each day.
Mark Cassie, operations director at Menzies Distribution, said: “We are delighted to announce the opening of our new newstrade logistics hub in Inverness which will provide around the clock, against the clock services to our newstrade customers. We are committed to supporting our publishers and retailers and remain committed to ensuring a sustainable route to market.”
