Vinyl fuels airfreight boom

[ June 1, 2015   //   ]

Sales – and airfreighting – of vinyl records are booming, says Woodland Entertainment, a specialist division of Essex-based specialist publishing forwarder Woodland Group. With the launch of the UK’s first weekly vinyl chart by the Official Charts Company in April, director of Woodland Entertainment, Maurizio Piroddi, says: “Despite predictions that CDs – then MP3s and streaming – would render vinyl obsolete, sales reached an 18-year high last year at 1.29 million. A few years ago, for every thousand CDs a music label might release, they would ship 100 vinyl records. Now, it is typically 300 vinyl records.”
