Newspaper production is centralizing around large regional hubs at the same time many other newspaper functions are being outsourced. In this interactive session, a group of panelists will cover the following: What does that mean for the industry? How do you roll trucks for long distances and still have workable deadlines? How are regional production centers accommodating multiple papers? How are newspapers coping with suddenly being in the software/logistics/scheduling business and becoming, essentially, a commercial printing business? How do newspapers decide what and when to outsource, and which vendors to trust? Why are some papers that outsourced printing reconsidering their decision?
