Nottingham is home to a plethora of publishing companies, magazine publishing and distribution companies. As a result the city is a viable place for any related business to operate in. Its proximity to other major cities and good transport links, make Nottingham an ideal place to run a publishing company. The city is in an ideal position to create an enviable nexus of business logistics routes that many cities can’t compete with. And for a sector, such as publishing, which relies on strong transport links, Nottingham is a perfect fit.
Although e-books have changed the way many publishing companies function, the written word is still a popular medium of communication. Like any sector operating nowadays, publishing and media companies have had to downsize to function as efficiently as possible.
Publishing companies – Store your books and stock
With this in mind, you may expect publishing companies to need less and less physical storage spaces. But this isn’t always the case. Books still get published in the hundreds of thousands of units which means more storage for materials and printing equipment. As well as an adequate amount of storage for the finished products. There’s also a need to store marketing materials and distribution leaflets. And when storing paper-based materials, the storage should be completely free from anything that can cause damage, which includes the temperature of the storage space.
With the recent decline in sales in the publishing industry, it’s essential for companies to be savvy with new practices to save money. That might mean a small but highly-skilled team of staff who can do a variety of tasks. Or to limit certain monthly overheads and decrease things like sundry expenses. For companies with a decent online presence, it might mean allocating more budget for e-books and related tech-based textual software publications.
