Woodland Group's Media team celebrates 25th anniversary

2019 marks a great milestone for Woodland Group as its media team celebrates its 25th anniversary - a quarter of a century of significant growth in an industry that is still relevant and influential in 2019 and the basis to some of the biggest eCommerce growth in history.

25 years ago, Woodland Group's CEO Kevin Stevens joined forces with John Russell on what was then called ‘Bookbridge’. Now Woodland Group, one of the UK’s largest independent logistics companies, the media team has continued to go from strength to strength over the years and fully integrated to become a well-known and trusted partner to the industry.

Through the years, Woodland Media strategically designed and built products and service solutions to suit its customers. With its own dedicated offices and fulfilment centres in the UK, Asia and USA, coupled with publishing industry-expert partners across the world, we are excellently placed to serve the publishing and printing communities globally.

At Woodland, we benefit from our own warehousing, trucking, skilled personnel and advanced IT solutions to ensure a fluid, measured and competitive customer experience through the supply chain. Three of our many locations across the UK alone (Chelmsford and Hayes/London Heathrow as well as Coventry with its dedicated fulfilment service tailored to suit the demands of the media and publishing industry) collectively boast over 190,000sq ft of warehousing and office space with a dedicated Media Team handling ocean, air, road and rail services to and from key locations across the globe.

Today, we are proud to have an excellent portfolio of clients including many of the world’s major printers, publishers, book & magazine distributors and eCommerce platforms while having managed to retain customers that first came onboard 25 years ago.

“I am very proud for Woodland to have such a longstanding relationship with the Publishing Sector. Over the past 25 years we have seen, and continue to see many changes and are as ready now as we have ever been to continue to fully support an industry that offers so much to so many.”, Kevin Stevens, Chairman and CEO of Woodland Group, commented.

To this day, the media team is still a hugely important part of Woodland Group and celebrations to mark this important 25th anniversary will commence at key industry event London Book Fair this week.
