LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – Sony Music UK has switched physical distribution to Cinram Novum.
The agreement will see Sony Music UK utilizing the supply chain services from Cinram Novum’s distribution center in Aylesbury, including both physical pick-pack-ship for B2B and B2C solutions.
The distribution partnership is effective immediately.
Stuart Hale-Brown, VP, operations, Sony Music UK, said: “We are delighted to be working with Cinram Novum and to have agreed a sustainable, UK-based distribution service for our physical retail partners over the coming years.”
Nigel Doe, MD, Cinram Novum, added: “This contract is great recognition of the on-going part Cinram plays in the distribution of physical media for the UK music industry.
