PSSC has established warehouses in Massachusetts and Michigan.
Books Shipped Annually
We currently serve over 350 publishers of varying size and sophistication—ranging from single title self-publishers, to publishers with thousands of SKUs. At any given time, we house over 12,000,000 units in storage, representing 100,000 SKUs and ship over 15,000,000 books each year. Along with the storage and shipping of books, we also perform set assemblies, kitting, barcoding, and shrink wrapping for many of our customers.
We believe the key to our continuing success is a long-term commitment to serving the needs of our publishing clients. Flexibility, responsiveness and integrity have ensured a longstanding and stable customer base. We give conscientious and prompt service to all of our clients, regardless of size or amount of business.
All of our services are provided from modern warehouses and facilities built to PSSC’s exacting specifications. Our buildings are efficient steel and masonry structures located for easy access to major highways and all carriers—they’re well lit, climate controlled, and have sprinkler systems installed. Multiple shipping and receiving docks avoid delays; no truck queuing or delivery appointments are required.
