LSDNA also offers customized mail order services for numerous publishers, including Éditions Atlas and Hachette Collections. Mail order services have helped us acquire solid expertise in third-party logistics (3PL) related to importing, receiving, preparing and fulfilling orders, as well as managing shipments. In addition, we're uniquely experienced in returns management (reverse logistics). Today, this area of expertise is consolidated within LS Distribution Logistics, which provides

3PL services to numerous partners in Canada and the United Stated in industries as diverse as cosmetics, food, optics, mail ordering, marketing, e-commerce and retail sales.

Finally, armed with our extensive experience in distribution and our privileged access to a vast network of retailers, LS Distribution Services acts as a wholesale division for non-press products, offering a range of complementary goods including imported confectionery (Haribo, Carambar, etc.), fine stationery, toys and other gift items. This move is aimed at enabling our retailers to diversify their revenue stream.
