Magazines Canada outsourcing single copy warehousing to Tilwood Inc.
Magazines Canada, which provides direct to retail newsstand distribution to many of its members intends to outsource its warehousing and pick-and-pack operation to Tilwood Inc. of Brampton, effective in June.
It means that magazines using Magazines Canada distribution will be shipping draw copies to Tilwood rather than the trade organization's offices on Adelaide Street in Toronto. Client magazines will continue to deal with MC staff.
Tilwood is a marketing support, fulfillment, distribution, warehousing and data management company. Magazines Canada distributes member magazines to almost 200 retailers, and to wholesalers who supply a further 150 stores, including Chapters and Indigo.
