Good luck to them. I managed Hub Publications' distribution for the Kokomo Tribune in north central Indiana back in the late 1990's. Besides a number of magazines titles and our TMC, we also delivered product samples. Magazines were the biggest problem. By the time we received them to distribute, they were already on store shelves, so subscribers knew they were late. We had to manually bag and label each magazine or combination of magazines going to an address prior to delivery, which slowed it down by another day or two. Combine that with carrier errors, open carrier routes, or rainy days and wet magazines, and there there was no way to satisfy the readers.

I know it sounds great on paper, but unless things have dramatically changed, it will cause all kinds of headaches. Seriously though, I wish them good luck.
