NFRN says wholesalers should reduce carriage charges

The NFRN said prices ought to reflect lower volumes

The NFRN is calling for wholesalers to cut carriage charges following cost declines.

In the past 12 months, the cost of fuel had dropped 4.2%, newspaper volumes had declined 10.2% and magazine volumes by 16.23%, but carriage charges had stayed the same, it argued.

“I think it is about time wholesalers reflected these changes,” said NFRN news operations committee chairman Colin Fletcher.
