PRINTED MATERIALS

Newspapers, Publications, Direct Mail Marketing

Loadtex has a long heritage in the printed materials industry. For over 15 years, we have worked with national, regional, and local publications making sure they’re at the spot needed at the time needed so they can be delivered to the consumer. We’ve been responsible for The New York Times, Investors Business Daily, and USA Today getting to local distribution hubs. Loadtex works with local magazines like Seniorific News, NOW Magazine, and Tailgater as part of their efficient supply chain. We take direct mail marketing materials from printers here in Texas all over the country. Loadtex knows the printed materials business.

Part of the Printing Supply Chain

Loadtex is a crucial part of the printing supply chain. It may be as simple as transporting large bundles of the New York Times to the local distribution sites, or it may mean picking up a load of covers and delivering them to the printer who has the inner pages. It can mean checking in pallets of direct mail marketing at the USPS Network Distribution Center, and having it verified for the printer. In all these ways, Loadtex plays a vital role in the smooth running of the printing supply chain. In this industry that absolutely depends on timely distribution, Loadtex is the choice for maintaining a fast, efficient supply chain.

Experts in Postal Procedures

Loadtex understands the intricacies and requirements of the USPS procedures for drop shipments. We check in printed materials at the local Network Distribution Center (NDC), transport it to a Sectional Center Facility (SCF) or Direct Distribution Unit (DDU). Sometimes we check the product in at a SCF and then we drop at a DDU; sometimes we drop at a Processing & Distribution Center (P&DC). In all of these cases, Loadtex knows the proper process that needs to be followed and the paperwork that must be obtained and presented. Loadtex has the knowledge and experience to do these kind of complicated shipments right.

Additional Responsibility and Work

Loadtex welcomes its role in being a part of an industry where printed material must arrive by a certain date or it is no longer relevant. It means extra work; we unload at a NDC, then reload, drive to a SCF, and then unload again. It also means tremendous responsibility; when we check in a load, Loadtex drivers obtain an 8125 Form as a receipt and that original must be presented at the destination. So in addition to all of the typical paperwork carriers must maintain, the particular paperwork demands of the USPS must be adhered to as well. We know how important each step in the process is, and we take pride in the work we do to get printed materials to their destinations promptly and properly.
