Why Book Distribution Services Are More Important Now Than Ever
We are living through a time at which more books are available to more people than ever before in history. While digital books are gaining popularity, nothing compares to printed books. Thanks to online shopping services and the global spread of used bookstores, the average book has a much longer shelf life than it used to.
That shift in demand also means increased expectations for book distribution services. Here is a quick list of some reasons why publishers and booksellers need to work with the best freight companies to keep their customers happy:
- Orders are less predictable than they used to be. When publishers could more reliably create hits, the demands on book distribution services were not as substantial – large and small book retailers would want some combination of best-sellers and classics in a relatively predictable combination.
- Now that more people shop online and for used books, many secondary booksellers have popped into existence that have sophisticated needs for managing inventory and deliveries.
- Because customers expect access to vast back catalogs of books – and almost instantly – booksellers need to work with more experienced and focused book distribution services in order to respond to those orders quickly.
