To provide a lower cost alternative to the U.S. Postal Service for all types of magazine distribution, ANS has developed multiple strategies to accomplish this goal.
Many national and regional magazine publishers have turned to newspapers for the distribution of their paid products such as HGTV Magazine, Town and Country, Country Living, Food Network, Elle, Oprah, and House Beautiful. ANS has developed a system of integrating this distribution into its Home Delivery route structures.
In addition, local free distribution magazines and tabloids have contracted with newspapers to distribute their products. Where possible, ANS has integrated this type of distribution into its free product distribution network of both TMC and Sunday Select. Where necessary, due to delivery deadlines, ANS has also set up stand-alone delivery cycles.
