Macmillan Publishers has announced that it will be implementing expedited shipping for independent retailers’ reorders placed between November 2017 and January 2018. This program applies to independent retailers that order on Macmillan’s retail returnable schedule and for locations that typically have ship transit times of three days or greater.
Starting November 3 and continuing through January 16, shipments with an invoice value greater than $100 will be shipped via a two-day air expedited service to locations where ship transit times are normally three days or more under standard ground services.
With this program, all independent retailers in the United States will have the benefit of ship times of two days or less.
For accounts that are typically reached in two days or less under standard ground shipping methods, there will be no changes to their current daily ship schedule for reorders.
New release orders will be dispatched as per Macmillan’s normal schedule, ensuring availability in time for publication dates. Shipments with an invoice value of less than $100 will be subject to shipping minimum rules and policy.
Booksellers with questions should contact their Macmillan sales representative.
