PRH Two-Day Holiday Transit Program Returns for 2022-2023 Season

Penguin Random House has announced that it will, for the 11th year, launch its two-day holiday transit program for the 2022-2023 season. The initiative, designed to support independent bookstores during and beyond the critical holiday season, launches on October 15, 2022, and extends through January 31, 2023.  

The program will continue to feature a “no minimums” requirement for independent bookstores, which was added last year. Booksellers can submit orders in whatever quantities work best for them, on their schedule, without having to build up to a minimum-retail-value threshold. Weather and transport conditions permitting, the company will expedite the picking and packing of orders received from the indies at its Westminster, Md.; Crawfordsville, Ind.; and Reno, Nev. Operations Centers for its Penguin Random House-affiliated publishers’ physical-format titles, and schedule transit “from our dock to the bookseller’s door” to arrive in two days or less. All three Centers have weekend shifts on duty to expedite Monday shipping for orders received Friday and Saturday.

The expedited-shipping program encompasses every frontlist and backlist title from the imprints of the Knopf Doubleday, Penguin Publishing Groups, Random House, Random House Children’s Books, Penguin Young Readers, Penguin Random House Audio divisions, and DK Publishing, as well as all the clients of Penguin Random House Publisher Services.
