Newsprinters agrees new five year partnership with Menzies Distribution

Newsprinters today announces a new UK-wide five year partnership arrangement with Menzies Distribution to provide all Primary Logistics Trunking Services.

The deal will see Menzies provide bulk distribution of newspapers and magazines from Newsprinters sites into wholesale locations across the UK.

In addition Newsprinters parent company News UK has also signed a contract with Menzies Distribution to undertake retail deliveries to over 40% of the UK retail network for the next five years from July 2019.

The expanded deal consolidates Newsprinters’ primary and wholesale distribution within one partnership, driving sustainability in the newspaper supply chain.

Newsprinters MD Darren Barker said: “I’m delighted to expand our relationship with Menzies to additionally cover our bulk distribution needs into wholesale. Driving collaborative and efficient working across the sector, and within our supply chain, is a core pillar of our strategy; plus with fewer vehicles on the road, we're also driving a greener business. This five year partnership underlines our commitment to developing friction-free end-to-end solutions for our current and future customers.”

Greg Michael, Menzies Distribution CEO, added: “Newsprinters has a clear strategy for long term sustainability and we’re pleased to be embarking on an enlarged five year partnership to fulfill their primary logistics trunking services.”
