Jersey digital print site launched by News UK

News UK has replaced an air freight operation with a new digital site.


An expensive air freight operation, which had 11 non-delivery and 136 late delivery days in the last 12 months, has been replaced by a new digital site.

The new site will improve delivery and provide News UK with a sizeable operational saving.

The Jersey Evening Post will print at the new site, as well as a number of UK national titles.

The new site will use two Kodak Prosper 6000 presses;  the latest and most advanced digital print presses in the world.

The site will also transport copies of all titles to Guernsey on a chartered boat service.

Alan McCann, operations services director, said: “This project is the culmination of over three years’ development work between the UK national newspaper titles, the publisher of the Jersey Evening Post and Kodak to create the largest and most technically advanced ink-jet newspaper print operation in the world.

“Multiple titles will be printed in waves each night to optimise distribution timings and we’ll avoid the hugely expensive air freight operation, that’s frequently delayed and results in lost sales.

“As ink-jet print technology develops, enabling higher speeds and reduced costs, it offers the prospect of establishing more low-cost print operations located close to market.”
