Company Profile


Codasat Canada was founded (in 1999) in response to the needs of small to medium-sized publishers wishing to sell their books in Canada. The logistical difficulties of dealing across trans-national borders can be costly, complicated and time consuming. Codasat Canada provides a solution by supplying a comprehensive sales and distribution service. The economies of scale achieved by Codasat Canada can then be passed on to client publishers.

Sandra Hargreaves, formerly President of Penguin Books Canada Ltd, and Thea Kooy, formerly Vice President Operations of Penguin Books Canada Ltd, are the principal shareholders of Codasat Canada.

Basic Business Premise of Codasat

Codasat Canada is a service provider. It offers a simple all-inclusive way for client publishers to maximize revenue in Canada.

The relationship between Codasat and its client publishers is one of partnership. Pricing and inventory levels are agreed upon together but the final decision in these matters is always the publisher's. Because Codasat represents a number of publishers it has been able to negotiate more favourable brokerage and distribution rates which are then passed on to client publishers.

The primary services are sales, distribution and collection. Secondary services include inventory management, marketing assistance and editorial advice. The costs for these services are based on a percentage of net invoice value of goods sold.

The fee charged covers the following costs:

    • Sales
    • Inventory Management and Control
    • Collection and Guarantee of Receivables
    • Customer Service
    • Canadian Warehousing and Storage
    • Invoicing, Picking, Packing and Shipping
    • Returns Processing
