Ingram to Launch Wholesaling Operations in the U.K.

Ingram is launching wholesaling operations in the U.K., the Bookseller reported. It joins Gardners, which has been the main book wholesaler in the country since the closing of Bertrams in 2020.

David Taylor, senior v-p of Ingram Content Group UK, told the Bookseller, "We're pleased to be able to confirm to the British book trade that Ingram is establishing a U.K.-based wholesale offer for books for any title that we can supply from our Milton Keynes operations. We will launch the full service in September 2022. Booksellers who already use Ingram Wholesale from our U.S. base will be able to order using our ipage or EDI ordering systems."

Taylor also said, "We have already had many conversations with publishers, distributors, and booksellers as we build and test our model and we're very happy with the response thus far."

Ingram has had a range of operations in the U.K., including print on demand and international distribution facilities.
