The distribution of the editors whose books are sold by ADYBOOKS is mainly performed by MDS Benelux, the Belgium distribution activity of Média Participations. ADYBOOKS and MDS Benelux enjoy an effective and long-standing partnership that was established in 2010.
The ideal formula for a publisher to gain exposure is the combination of a small and agile sales structure that truly listens to its publishers and the strength of a large distribution entity that provides the logistics, the warehousing, the handling of the orders and of the returns, the invoicing and the collection of the money.
The partnership also enables the book sellers to achieve economies of scale and reduce the transport costs since the deliveries include the orders for the books sold by both ADYBOOKS and MDS Benelux. ADYBOOKS also sells in Belgium and the Great Duchy of Luxembourg many of the books of the catalogue of Cap Diffusion, a French book seller also distributed by MDS Benelux. ADYBOOKS also sells in Belgium and the Great Duchy of Luxembourg the inprints of the Vilo EDIGROUP group (owned and distributed inprints) that are distributed directly from France and the books of les Éditions L’Imprévu (group Elcy) distributed by Dilisco from France.
