Difficulties with UK supply chain, February 21st, 2023

In October 2022 major UK distributor Turpin went into administration. This affected many publishers, among which Brill, Berghahn, Emerald and Liverpool University Press to name a few (...complete list). Some of the publishers distributed by Turpin moved their distribution to Turpin’s sister company Orca/Marston. Others have taken the distribution into their own hands or partnered with other distributors.

Setting up these new arrangements has taken considerable time and has put huge pressure on the operations of the new distributors, causing delays of at least 4-6 weeks with distributors like Orca/Marston. Publishers are also still struggling to get the stock released that is still held at Turpin due to legal and administrative restrictions. As a result, only now, nearly 5 months later, we and all other vendors are receiving the first few print-on-demand books from Brill publishers. Their offset-printed books will not be available until Summer.

We are in close contact with all affected publishers regarding the status of your orders and will keep you updated. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused by these delays and thank you for your understanding in this matter.
