Industry Updates


ANF National Professional Development and Training Update

The ANF has received a fantastic response from newsagents and industry partners alike since the announcement of our National Professional Development and Training Program. As a result of this feedback there has been a review of the features required in the electronic Learning Management System (LMS) being developed for the training platform.

The positive response from so many of our newsagency industry partners has led to a postponement of the launch of the first units of training, originally scheduled for November.


ANF Response to Competition Policy Review (Harper Review) Draft Report

The Draft Report of the Competition Policy Review Panel (Harper Review) was released in September. The ANF had provided a detailed submission to the Review.

We feel the approach taken so far by the panel in their recommendations in the Draft Report is reflective of a fairly narrow pure economic approach to protecting competition. This is based around specifically the ‘lessening of competition’ and not competitors. We have prepared a further detailed submission in response, highlighting that the objects clauses of most competition law take a broader approach than the purely economic. It is our view that competition law should factor in other considerations. We feel that issues such as 'fair conduct' and 'fair trading' need to receive more consideration and weighting in the Draft recommendations.


CONNECT and Couriers Please Inbound Parcels

There have been a few members who were unclear when they heard of another parcel company using the CONNECT name.

The ANF: working to protect, promote and transform the newsagency channel.


INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS SUPPORT - The ANF has developed a dedicated professional IR service to include detailed manuals, annual wage updates, online webinars and day to day member issue support. Soon our IR Manual will be re-invented in bite sized online sections to make accessing this even easier. The ANF is driving sensible discussion around penalty rates and the impact on small business through our Penalty Rates Strategy.


CONNECT grows exponentially

The last three days have seen over 250 newsagents sign on to the Newsagent exclusive Hubbed CONNECT parcel system.

The guarantee of volume and revenue has been an attractive proposition to those in identified territories.

Network addresses reconciliation issues

Following on from pressure from the ANF for a solution to the time-consuming process of processing Network magazines, Network Services has created a newsagent-specific outlet summary with totals to assist newsagents in reconciliation.

Newsagents will still receive the old Outlet Summary in the delivery with their driver. The driver uses this to know what stock to deliver.
