LSC Communications Signs Agreement with Elsevier, Acquires its Fulfillment and Distribution Center
LSC Communications, Chicago, announced a multi-year agreement with Elsevier, the global information analytics business specializing in science and health. LSC currently prints a significant share of Elsevier’s books and journals and, under the new agreement, will begin providing book fulfillment and distribution services in 2019 for Elsevier’s U.S. markets.
Additionally, LSC Communications has acquired Elsevier's Linn, Missouri-based Fulfillment and Distribution Center. Consequently, all Elsevier employees will be transferred to LSC in 2019. The addition of this facility will further strengthen LSC’s ongoing focus on providing a full range of supply chain services for publishers of both printed and electronic books.
“We’re pleased to have reached an agreement with LSC for the sale of the Linn facility and have engaged in a multi-year agreement for warehouse fulfillment services,” said Anita Chandraprakash, executive vice president of global operation for Elsevier. “This is a very positive outcome, which allows us to continue the high level of service our customers expect.”
“The Linn, Missouri warehouse distribution center is a strategic fit to our Book Publisher Services platform and expands our fulfillment and distribution footprint,” added Dave McCree, president of book sales for LSC Communications. “We look forward to providing fulfillment services to Elsevier and future clients out of the Linn facility.”
