RR Donnelley: Free Webcast to Help Publishers Reduce Distribution Expenses

Press release from the issuing company

February 12, 2004 -- RR Donnelley is offering a free webcast seminar on its DistributionOptimizer solution on Thursday, Feb. 19 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm (eastern). The focus of the seminar will be to help magazine publishers learn how to reduce their distribution costs through the co-palletization program offered by the U.S. Postal Service. Co-palletization allows pre-sorted, bundled magazines from different publishers to be combined on the same pallet for deeper postal penetration and additional postal discounts. The U.S. Postal Service is encouraging all publishers to palletize since mail on pallets is less expensive to handle and less prone to damage. In addition, the U.S. Postal Service says palletization can reduce its processing costs which will help constrain rates for all publishers. To register for this free webcast seminar, send an e-mail to Latrisha Clarke at [email protected] by Tuesday, February 17, with the following information: name, title, company name, phone number and e-mail address. Please include "DistributionOptimizer Webcast" in the subject line of the e-mail. The toll-free URL for the Webcast will then be e-mailed to you. When you register, you'll be entered to win an Apple iPod.
