Australian Publishers get connected

Melbourne, Australia

Lightning Source / Ingram, the major US book distributor is running its brand new Print On Demand facility in Scoresby, Melbourne, Australia, which signals a new boom not only for POD paper books but also for e-books in Australia.

Publishers in Australia who want to expand their reach can do so easily with Lightning Source, who manufacture these books in one of their US or UK facility and send them out through the appropriate resellers. By producing and shipping books in North America or Europe, Australian publishers avoid the expense and complication of getting physical inventory across borders. Order fulfillment is accelerated while freight costs are cut.

Lightning Source / Ingram, the global leader in POD (and book distribution) connects publishers – big and small – and has the world’s largest distribution channel of book wholesalers and retailers.
