On the road again in search of new ways to meet and exceed client expectations

     Logo for London Book Fair, one of many international book fairs visited by employees of Universal Logistics, a leading provider of customs brokerage and freight forwarding services for the international book publishing industry.

It’s that time of year again when we make our annual tour of the major international book fairs, starting with a visit to the London Book Fair, held April 12-14 at the Olympia in West London, England.  This year we were represented by Chris Barnard, Vice President – Projects & Market Development and Andrew Doick, Business Development – International.  Mr. Barnard, who has visited this book fair many times, observed, “It’s amazing how much has changed in just one year.  We learned a lot and are going to use those insights to enhance our services to existing clients.” 

Universal Logistics already has an unmatched combination of local and international strengths:

  • the leading provider of logistics services for the Canadian book publishing industry
  • the only Canadian representative (and a founding member) of BookFreight, a worldwide network of freight forwarders, specializing in book industry transportation management  
  • the only company endorsed by the Canadian Book and Periodical Council (customs broker and international freight forwarder) for the last 21 years 

Next stop on our international tour of book industry events is BookExpo America (BEA), which takes place at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, May 11-13.

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