• The South Australian newsagent model
of organically consolidated larger
metropolitan and more efficient delivery
areas, has in part influenced the T2020
model, as have initiatives there by ANPL
such as migration and the roll out of
flat wrap. SA distribution agents have
successfully achieved many of the desired
outcomes of T2020, will effectively be
penalised for having achieved this, as
their existing territories and business
models will not neatly fit a simplistic
territory or process model? If a newsagent
is already distributing 10,000 papers, but
there territory does not line up with News
Limited’s new territories, is there room
• In Tamania there are currently
approximately 20 semi-authorised
specialist newsagent retailers that receive
20% for counter sales of The Mercury
newspaper. A commission cut to 12.5%
wont be acceptable.
• We believe that this Tasmanian model
deserves further consideration and that
potentially this higher value model of
retail outlet be considered as the basis
for developing a new model with KPI’s
linked to remuneration for the quality
representation of a suite of News Limited
products and services, these could
include digital support, classified ad sales,
payment facilities, promotional activities
• The timeframes that have been indicated
for the Tasmanian roll out of T2020 are
lengthy and the regionality of Tasmania
means that the specific area would likely
be constrained to the metropolitan area of
Hobart. There are currently approximately
25 distribution territories that may be
in scope and the size of consolidated
runs. Newsagents would like to use
the opportunity of time to consider a
number of newsagent-initiated organic
consolidation models and innovative
alternate models that produce high levels
of efficiency and sustainability.
• WA newsagents need both publishers to
engage with distribution newsagents to
develop a strategy to give newsagents
a clear defined direction for the future
of the industry and to intensify every
effort to transition as quickly as possible.
Distribution agents are unable to move
forward without further information
ANF IN SA
ANF CEO Alf Maccioni and ANF-SA State
manager Colin Shipton met with the News
Limited team in September to gain further
information on possibilities for the future of
newspaper distribution in SA.
Newsagents were informed that as the
T2020 model is being implemented only
in the launch region of the south side of
Brisbane there is no immediate change to
distribution or retail contracts anywhere
else in Australia. News Limited is taking
a staged, collaborative and considered
approach to the roll out of the new model,
with a focus first on metropolitan and
regional areas in Queensland, NSW and
The focus is on metropolitan changes
and, as many regional areas in SA are quite
a distance from other towns, the reality may
be that no change will take place.
LEVY FOR NSW AGENTS
In light of the anticipated changes to
the distribution and retail contracts of
newsagents, the NANA Board of Directors
has announced a member levy of $15 per
month for one year (beginning 1 October
2012) in order to create a legal fund/pool to
assist NANA members
This legal fund will assist NANA
members to receive expert legal advice on a
number of issues from ACCC authorisations,
contracts and the PPA Act.
