    In a recent announcement concerning Commercial Delivery of all magazines, the clear fingerprints of the GB are seen to direct matters that are non spiritual, directing the operation they claim to have no control over. Why are they directing commercial matters if they are aloof from any and all control and direction of the various WT bodies. The Publishing Committe, like all similar groups, clearly take the lead from the GB, the Publishing Committee has no leeway in what they do, carry out orders from a group claiming no authority. The sooner charity overseeing bodies in the world see this the better.

    The thing that intrigues me is that there is a way more inexpensive for a corporation like WT having its own trucks and people making the makes no sense... unless they're planning to reduce even more printing.

    Not true. The cost to maintain a fleet of vehicles drivers and mechanics does not scale down effectively. It made sense on a huge scale but with thing paired down its more liablity than benefit

    What stood out to me was the signpost that showed the GB run the whole show, contrary to what they say.

    Not sure what this is about, but commercial truckers are always going to be cheaper than an organization on the scale of the WT. Even in the past, the "we do it all ourselves" has been more of a statement of faith (in the organization) and/or brainwashing than a sensible business decision.

    If you're distributing anything across the entire world (it used to be ~3-5 small boxes per congregation, nowadays it must be down to 1 or 2), unless it's of the scale where you can effectively run a number of airports in strategic locations (eg. FedEx and UPS) you will not be effective doing it all yourself with just vans, trucks and rental planes.

    Hell, a group of 5 volunteers with a tractor trailer truck could distribute ALL the literature for the ENTIRE US these days on a monthly basis, it would cost the "organization" about $1.5M in maintenance and fuel costs per year. Sending 2 packages of books to every congregation using a delivery contract would cost ~$300,000
