Extensive and reliable distribution and delivery
Flexible distribution and targeted delivery services
We can deliver fast, same or next day deliveries, direct to warehouses, wholesalers, bookshops, or to individual addresses.
Warehouses & wholesalers
Deliveries are palletised and a signed proof of delivery (POD) available in real-time.
Deliveries are packed in cartons and sent through a national carrier direct to the high street stores. A signed POD is available in real-time.
Often part of a run is sent to a list of individuals. These are cartoned, labelled and dispatched. We use the most cost effective delivery method or use a customer's contracted courier.
Ordering direct deliveries
Often when placing a print order you won't have the details for your direct deliveries. With Clays' fast, secure, online, real-time Ordering System you can order direct deliveries up to midday on the day of dispatch and have them delivered NEXT DAY.
Text paper weight and thickness can sometimes fall outside expected manufacturing tolerances, and this can affect the anticipated number of books in a parcel. Our books-per-parcel, parcel calculator gives a guide to how many books fit into a pack produced by our binding lines. Also note, if you are making a calculation for your warehouse, you should enter the publisher's name and advised your warehouse packing criteria.
