The innovative solution for the book industry

Like no other, the book industry masters perfect logistics.  They provide millions of deliverable products, often making them available overnight.  They require a close-knit transport network, efficient bundling systems and a multitude of tailor-made, individual services.

IBS has been operating in this demanding market for more than 20 years. Thanks to continuously controlled growth and the development of proprietary import and export book transport in bulk, we have been able to continuously improve our market position in this segment. With our future-oriented concepts and as a publishers' distribution center, we have also grown into a valuable outsourcing partner especially for publishers with an international focus.

However, our logistics services exceed by far those of a publishers' distribution center for print media.  IBS also moves stationary, gift articles as well as a multitude of complementary products and is the liason between manufacturers, distributors and end customers of related sectors, on a national and international level.

Via our worldwide partner and agent network, closely oriented towards the needs of the (international) book and media trade, we serve our bookseller and publisher customers in Europe, North America and Asia on a daily basis:

  • In Europe via a Europe-wide network,
  • On a worldwide scale via the partner network for international air and sea transport.
