Book Consolidation

The core activity of WBS, and the mainstay to our continued success, book consolidation is a specialised service requiring unique and innovative solutions. We offer reliable and effective consolidation and shipping to most locations worldwide.

It is the mix of our in-house bespoke systems, specially arranged and dedicated warehouses, and our highly skilled and experienced team, that forms the unique service we offer to our clients.
When you place an order with your supplier (publisher/wholesaler/distributor) and you nominate WBS as your shipper, we step in. We communicate with the majority of the publishing world’s suppliers, and we are recognised and recommended as a reliable and effective forwarder.

Every day we receive thousands of packages. We sort, individually bar code and process these on your behalf and store them ready for your instructions. Upon receiving your instructions we pack all the packages together into a single shipment, complete the documentation, then arrange delivery to your door.
Offering consolidation from the major publishing sources through our own network of offices and partners, we can arrange weekly services to and from most destinations from our UK platform utilising our dedicated terminal and personnel.

We are proud to be the consolidator and shipper for some of the international leading names in our industry that include Amazon, WH Smith, Waterstones, Adlibris, Ozon, FNAC and thousands more.

Publisher clients include Pearson, Penguin, Hachette, Random House, Macmillan, McGraw Hill, Wiley, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Cengage, Taylor & Francis, and thousands more.
