Top logistics and an up-to-date product range
Delivering exactly the right books in the right amount at the right time to the right bookstore – that has been and is our key task as books wholesaler. Libri offers full service from catalogue and professional inventory control systems to central warehouse as well as logistics and marketing and distribution activities.
In addition we offer innovative solutions for publishers, retail booksellers and online retailers focused on digital content distribution, such as a continuously growing digital catalogue of eBooks and audio downloads as well as the option to manage your own online shop via our service Libri.Shopline.
In Germany’s largest wholesale book distribution centre, more than 600,000 German and English titles are stored and delivered overnight by our shipping company BOOXpress, all over the country, from 24 trans-shipment points. We deliver orders from booksellers six days a week (Monday to Saturday), generally before shop opening hours.
Goods are labelled and sorted ready for sale. To ensure your order book stays in order (and up to date), and for added convenience in your goods receipt procedures, electronic data communication is used throughout for all ordering and delivery processes. We also handle forward orders relating to seasonal business, including school textbooks and calendars.
We firmly believe that, today more than ever, our just-in-time logistics and our consolidating function can help make a bookshop a commercial success.
Stocks that are optimized and (thanks to short delivery times) always fresh guarantee not only that you have only a minimum of capital tied up but that it yields high returns. In an age where individual book titles are often past their sell-by date after only a few days, this is a vital prerequisite for exploiting sales potential to the full.
At the same time, rationalization effects that made possible consolidated procurement from wholesale book dealers are more important than ever. For some years now it has no longer been a given that cost increases can be compensated for by gains in sales. In seeking to always offer new services that streamline operational processes, we are tackling this change head on.
