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.

there's talk that Magazines Canada also fired its longtime distribution staff in order to save money. By outsourcing, I hope Magazines Canada isn't sacrificing quality service and people's jobs for cash savings because that isn't the kind of association I'd want to be a member of.

Disappointing that they did not open this bid process up to those within the industry, who have the capacity and economies of scale to have offered a high quality of service.
