“Scale is an advantage for virtually all
                         aspects of distribution. If you’ve got a
                         warehouse, you want to ll it, because you
                         pay the same for empty space as you do for
                         utilized space.”
                                             – Shatzkin




                                                                      tr

If you’re a small publisher...
                         • You’re more expensive to serve
                         • Likely to have more limited choices
                         • Can manufacture scale by buddying up




                                                                  tr

“We’re seeing erosion [of sales] to American
                         competition that scale-wise no one can
                         touch.”

                                   – Canadian distributor
