Friday, June 22, 2007

The Bibliographical Center for Research (BCR) and Velocity Express are joining together to provide physical delivery services in the library market. In addition to traditional library-to-library delivery services, the two organizations will explore innovative solutions to library delivery problems through developing home delivery and other types of pilot projects. BCR will assist Velocity with sales and marketing.

"We are very excited about our partnership with BCR. Our collective strengths will allow Velocity to be the industry leading delivery provider to library systems across the United States," said Drew Kronick, executive vice president, Business Development and Supply Chain Solutions. "BCR's understanding of the needs of libraries coupled with the strength of their long-term relationships will allow Velocity to provide enhanced service offerings to the meet the needs of library systems coast to coast." "Users have high expectations regarding library services. They want materials delivered fast and to locations convenient for them," asserted Brenda Bailey-Hainer, BCR executive director. "Our agreement with Velocity will allow libraries to experiment with improvements in delivery services at prices that are highly competitive." Velocity Express (www.velocityexpress.com), the nation's largest provider of time definite regional delivery solutions, operates in 48 states in over 150 locations in leading markets across the United States and Canada. The company's services are supported by a customer-focused technology infrastructure, providing customers with the reliability and information they need to manage their transportation and logistics systems, including a proprietary package tracing system that enables customers to view the status of any package via a flexible web reporting system.

The Bibliographical Center for Research (BCR) is a nonprofit, multistate library cooperative that has served the library community since its founding in 1935, providing cost-effective library and information services.
