Midpoint Trade Books has entered into an agreement with the Ingram Content Group through which Ingram will provide logistics, fulfillment, and print-on-demand services for Midpoint’s clients. Midpoint will continue to focus on sales, product consulting, accounts receivable management and customer service.
Midpoint CEO Eric Kampmann said the deal with Ingram will free up Midpoint to add more clients to the distributor's base of 225 publishers. “Signing with Ingram should help us attract more publishers,” Kampmann said, adding that he was particularly excited about using Ingram to reach digital and international markets.
As the number of independent publishers increases, we recognize that Midpoint has an opportunity to give relevant and unmatched service to their clients,” said Phil Ollila, Chief Content Officer, Ingram Content Group Inc.
