I’ve been banging on lately about newsagents being able to refer to the Press Distribution Forum for assistance (from administrator Dorothy King) when they have problems with their wholesaler.

Pleased to report that Paul Moscardini, Hallfield Lane Stores, Wetherby, has been so pleased with the outcome that he has issued a joint statement with Dave Shedden, head of communications at Menzies Distribution, saying that, with the help of Dorothy King they have resolved all issues raised by Paul over the past few months without having to progress to the arbitrator.

A really positive result will be the enhancement and streamlining of the i-menzies site, which they hope will offer long-term benefits for Menzies Distribution customers. •
