Going further for our valued publishing clients


Our annual tour of the world’s largest conferences for the publishing industry begins next month with a stop at the Olympia in West London, England, the new location for the annual London Book Fair.  This year’s theme is Making Words Go Farther, a reflection of the many new ways published works are being delivered to consumers.  That change is further underlined by the wording used to describe the Fair: “The global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels”.

“It’s a mistake to assume that publishing is just about books,” says Mark Glionna, Vice President – Client Relations.  “It’s so much more and we are committed to staying up-to-date on anything that could impact the more than 100 publishing industry importers and exporters who are our clients.” 

You can find Mr. Glionna and Chris Barnard, Vice President – Projects & Market Development, at the BookFreight booth (Stand 6B86).  BookFreight is a worldwide network of freight forwarders specializing in the book trade.  Universal is a founding member and the sole representative from Canada.

For more information, contact Chris Barnard, Vice President – Projects & Market Development.

Quick Tip #57
When Incoterms are incomplete

The shipping term FOB (Free on Board) is incomplete when the port of shipment and country are omitted. Moreover, you could end up paying extra if an incorrect assumption (guess) is made about your port of shipment (many countries have multiple ports of shipment).
