Take-Two to outsource distribution business

Ditan Distribution to take charge of Jack of All Games business and employees

Take-Two is to outsource its own distribution business, Jack of All Games, to new partner Ditan Distribution.

Ditan will now handle all shipping, receiving and warehouse management of the business, along with the Jack of All Games lease and staff, based in West Chester, Ohio.

"Outsourcing non-core elements of our business will further enable us to deliver on our pledge to make Take-Two the most creative, the most innovative and the most efficient company in our industry," said Ben Feder, chief executive officer of Take-Two.

"Ditan is a best-in-class distributor with extensive experience serving the interactive entertainment industry.

“By working together with Ditan, we will enhance the efficiency of Jack of All Games' operations, improve service to our retail channel and third-party customers, and reduce the level of resources required for our distribution operation," he added.

The deal is effective immediately.

"We are very pleased that Take-Two and Jack of All Games have selected Ditan as their distribution service partner," said Ditan CEO, Ron Novotny.

"We look forward to contributing to their business by delivering the world-class brand of service that has helped make Ditan's customers successful at retail."
