Menzies Distribution has secured a five-year contract with News UK-owned printing arm Newsprinters. 

The deal will see Menzies providing primary logistic trunking services for Newsprinters titles, including Mail on Sunday and Sunday Telegraph, handling bulk distribution from the printer to wholesale locations across the UK.

Newsprinters managing director Darren Barker said: “I’m delighted to expand our relationship with Menzies to additionally cover our bulk distribution needs into wholesale.

“Driving collaborative and efficient working across the sector, and within our supply chain, is a core pillar of our strategy. Plus, with fewer vehicles on the road, we are also driving a greener business.”

Menzies CEO Greg Michael added: “Newsprinters has a clear strategy for long-term sustainability and we’re pleased to be embarking on an enlarged five-year partnership to fulfill their primary logistics trunking services.”

The deal comes after Menzies struck up a deal with Frontline Group last week. Menzies said it wants to become the “partner of choice” for the supply chain across the UK and Ireland.
