In Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland in recent months newspaper and magazine distribution has become even more unpredictable than usual.
Too often, newspapers and magazines arrive late in newsagencies. Sometimes, they don’t arrive at all.
This is not the fault of the newsagent.
Talking to the newspaper and magazine companies you get the feeling they don’t see it as their fault, either. They point at those they contract with.
Newsagents find it almost impossible to get assistance that resolves the problem of late and completely missed newspaper and magazine deliveries.
The distress the situation is causing for affected newsagents is considerable.
