We have been talking to The Australian Lottery and Newsagents' Association about our thoughts that today, in 2021, it is unacceptable for publishers to make bids for the distribution of their titles without providing some form of EDI support to the sellers of these titles.
This is urgent as many of these titles are big sellers so producing a lot of *unnecessary* work.
Currently, these titles are affected.

It appears, though, that many more titles are going to be affected.
Can you please contact the publishers of these titles to explain what this means for your company if you are affected?
We would be very grateful.
