Due to the restrictions surrounding the Covid pandemic and the uncertainty of retailers’ trading patterns, News UK DTR (direct to retail) has deferred its review of carriage charges for three months.

The review traditionally takes place at the start of the year but is now pencilled in for March.

National President Stuart Reddish said: “News UK is to be applauded for this decision, which is most welcome in these uncertain times for retailers. I hope that Smiths News and Menzies take note and follow News UK’s lead.”
