Beginning today, October 2, Penguin Random House will start its popular 2-Day expedited shipping program, which allows retailers who order by 3 p.m. ET on a weekday to have the titles shipped the following business day.
Now in its sixth year, the 2-Day shipping transit program will run though March 2 2018. All frontlist and backlist books from Penguin Random House imprints as well as titles from distribution clients of Penguin Random House Publisher Services are available via the 2-Day rapid replenishment program. PRH’s Westminster, Maryland and Crawfordsville, Indiana operations centers, have been staffed to enable orders received on Fridays and Saturdays to be shipped Monday.
Annette Danek, senior v-p, fulfillment, Penguin Random House, said, “We love this time of year. My colleagues in Westminster and Crawfordsville, in partnership with the home office, are always seeking new ways to enhance our service to indie bookstores. Innovative technology allows us to get books from our dock to their door faster than ever before.”
