It is our goal to become the specialist supplier of FLATWRAP technology in Australia and New Zealand to publishers, print sites, mailing houses, newsagents, distributors and contractors by the 1st July 2014. All Research and Development is trialled and implemented by our distribution arm – MMPD P/L. • MMPD is an experienced print, magazine and free press distribution specialist and logistics operation and currently operates a daily large paid newsprint and magazine circulation fulfilment platform that has the ability to manage and process retail sales within Australia and has the capability to manage and facilitate the complete account management process within both home delivery and reseller networks. • FDS is currently trialling Aust made bolt on purpose built equipment that will deliver substantial revenues streams currently not available within Aust Newsprint distribution centres. Negotiations have begun with WA interested parties on developing an Aust made all in one FLATWRAP machine. • This additional advertising space & form of direct targeted marketing will allow advertisers to target the intended demographic at a unit cost that is far more competitive and priced at a rate far cheaper than the current players that dominate the market Nationally.
MMPD PERSONELL Managing Director: Simon Coulter Owner: Michelle Coulter Operations Manager: Katrina Roberts Administration Manager: Tina Moore Customer Services Manager: Courtney Hamson Accounts Manager: Kestra Triasmono Distribution Supervisor: John Northcott / Jacob Cordtz Human Resources: Wanita Triasmono The above mentioned personnel have developed and delivered a unique distribution model called P.D.D. This model will continue to become “Smarter” and evolve as the market dictates, Publisher Direct Distribution, combined with a state of the art FLATWRAP distribution facility that specializes in the distribution of newsprint and magazine publications including subscription titles into residential, and commercial areas within SE QLD, Northern NSW, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland and Wellington.
MARKET SUMMARY MMPD was created due to the lack of print solution providers within the local market. In accordance to this, with rising costs and the fact that the QLD Newsagent distribution model was plagued by numerous small delivery networks with limited resellers, the model was simply destined to fracture, due to its current state being unviable and outdated. • The absence of a reliable professional print contracting service in the QLD market enabled MMPD to establish a centralized distribution centre that specialises in accurate, targeted, reliable and timely delivery into the market • In 2008 MMPD embarked on a 4 year R&D program embracing FLATWRAP (an innovative unproven technology that allowed for the development of highly profitable revenue streams which included the creation of a new advertising space on printed film) • FLATWRAP significantly reduces labor and service costs and turn around time is improved by up to 50% per shift. • Savings are a minimum of: • 50% when manually inserted • Increased output (200%) when the PF12 hopper unit is in use
TODAY’S SITUATION Today is about recognising and taking the opportunities presented and developing a HD/reseller/ Free Press distribution network that is viable, highly profitable, KPI focused and rewards those entities that are prepared to do the work and invest the capital required. • Current Print distribution networks in both QLD regional & metro areas are fractured and broken. • Strengthening the relationship between publisher and distributor, improving tech, introducing standard bench marking and KPI standards. • Remove Old World Technology and deliver print in a manner that is reliable, accurate & customer service orientated and most importantly delivered – FLAT to the market. The exact format in which they were designed.
CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES The creation of specialist newsprint and magazine distribution centers' that have been specifically designed to deliver premium advertising revenue due to newly created advertising space and features capable of delivering additional advertising revenue. • Offering the total solution including subscription and sub agency based revenue streams. This type of central FLATWRAP facility & distribution centre allows the targeted demographic to be continuously engaged at a relatively low cost to the advertiser with the resources that are currently accessible by the publisher. • Exponential potential in Aust to grow quality brands and deliver a level of customer service not yet witnessed within the Nation. Evolution from Print to Online sales delivery The transformation from distribution centre into profit centre is due to the recent availability & integration of FLATWRAP technology & the review of timely, accurate distribution platforms, that assist with ensuring the brand is always being promoted & delivered when the client expects to receive the daily news same time and position within the property line.
BUSINESS CONCEPT The FLATWRAP model is based on the proven and well established Japanese technology that has been further enhanced by an Australian designed and manufactured Hopper fed conveyor system that increases the output from 1600units per hour to over 3Kunits per hour and the capability to generate a further (6) additional advertising revenue streams. The placement of (7) such units at the NQN Print Facility and additional News Print site in Brisbane will deliver a minimum of 14K wrapped units per 75. MMPD will have the technology, resources and the expected WHS/OHS to provide Print Sites support with regards to the newly created divisions/areas for newspaper distribution within Cairns/Townsville and the SE QLD. • FDS has installed 2 units in Victoria @ Regional sites CA (Commercialization Aust) believe that the MMPD model can be franchised and delivered to market in conjunction with News Ltd future distribution model, which would allow MMPD to retain the master license and sell the remaining licenses in NSW/Vic/TAS/SA/NT. This gives the publisher greater control over the type of personnel who are likely to embrace such a business whilst keeping a close check on the progress of each zone roll out. Export opportunities into North America have been identified and once brand is established and dominant in local market then this opportunity will be explored.
BUSINESS CONCEPT Goal and Objective The objective is to negate current distribution costs to deliver ongoing highly profitable revenue streams within parts of the distribution model which were not attainable until now. Specialised in targeting and marketing campaigns whereby specific demographics are engaged and saturated with the chosen brand, with elements being layered throughout the landscape in which the demographic works, learns, rests, plays & prays. Printed Film – Create viable and innovative revenue streams that engage and excite advertisers which alternatively allows pricing to be charged at a premium rate. • Subscriber based platforms for all print paid/free publications. • FDS has the A4 Magazine and brochure tech to manage this task. • Mailing house and online sales platforms to be built once print media model is established.
