CPI’s long relationship with Kluhwer has resulted
in a joint print, warehouse, distribution and sales
venture with Air Business International (ABI).
We are manufacturing and warehousing books, journals and loose-leaf product, therefore removing the need for a third-party distributor. ABI then deliver competitive global distribution, subscription and sales management. CPI’s experience of working with ABI has provided a seamless transition for the publisher.
The resulting vendor consolidation has supported CPI in being able to increase batched manufacturing opportunities giving the publisher a wider choice of inventory models, including virtual stock, shorter turn-around times, and significant overall cost savings.
The sharing of sales data between the publisher and CPI allows for continued assessment of the inventory models, and helps to work towards the common goal of reducing warehouse stock and generating ongoing cost savings.
