The Reykjavik code

SBS Worldwide has won a second commission from TBS, the provider of warehousing and distribution services to publishers, to deliver a consignment containing the latest Dan Brown title “The Lost Symbol” to Icelandic wholesaler Penninn.

The contract follows the delivery of an earlier shipment to Reykjavik Airport for Penninn prior to the official publication date. They reached their destination a day early, with SBS meeting the embargo conditions designed by publisher Random House.

“We stuck to the very strict guidelines we were given,” said SBS air general manager Jonathan Blackney. “That TBS has come back to us and awarded us another contract for delivery I think demonstrates the commitment SBS shows to its clients. For more than 26 years we have shown a consistent commitment to protecting publishers’ copyright while their goods are in transit.”
