Following the successful takeover and renaming of the Valora Services Division in July 2014 Thomas Kirschner’s 7Days Media Services GmbH (7Days) has now also taken over the goods logistics at Valora Retail Switzerland.
7Days Media Services supplies over 5,000 press outlets and 7,500 parcel logistics customers with the latest press titles.
"7Days Media Services" is the new company taking over the press wholesale business in German and Italian-speaking Switzerland as well as the logistics brand "nilo Night Logistics".
The mandate and function of 7Days Logistics for press products involves the timely picking and distribution of print products to around 5,000 press outlets.
Once the print products have been pre-picked at the Egerkingen logistics centre, individual picking is then carried out locally throughout Switzerland at one of the eleven regional hubs by means of single place picking.
In one day, around 30,000 km are covered in order to deliver around 1 million newspapers and magazines. Deliveries are usually made by 7 a.m. These deliveries are transported from the Egerkingen logistics centre to eleven regional hubs for order picking as part of daytime and nighttime delivery rounds. The press products are then distributed to the 5,000 or so press outlets.
Returns refer to unsold press items which are returned to us by the sales outlets once the publication period has expired. The returned copies are credited to the retailers.
Returns are processed at the Egerkingen logistics centre. Processed returns are passed on as waste paper for recycling or collected whole and returned to the publishing house.
