Self Select are the exclusive distributor of free publications to Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Asda and Co-op group stores across the UK.
The accreditation demonstrates their ability to report and prove their Multidrop Distribution (free copies) to industry agreed standards.
This is positive news, says Self Select Distribution, for UK publishers of free newspapers and magazines who look to their distribution suppliers to supply accurate data and information in accordance with ABC standards.
Andy Barker, Sales & Marketing Director at SSD commented: “As the UK free publication market evolves, it has become increasingly important that publishers receive accurate and transparent distribution reports that allow them to drive response to advertisers whilst closely managing distribution of their free titles.
“We are confident that our unique PDA based proof of delivery & reporting system gives publishers the timely information they need, whilst significantly simplifying the collation and interpretation process required for ABC audit.”
Jan Pitt, Commercial Director at ABC, commented: “Congratulations to Self Select Distribution for achieving ABC Certified Supplier status for the eleventh consecutive year. The ABC logo is the media industry’s ‘stamp of trust’, and demonstrates Self Select Distribution’s commitment to meeting industry agreed standards on behalf of their clients.”
