INTRODUCTION
DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL
RELATIONSHIP
Definition:
Distribution (also known as the place variable in the marketing mix, or
the 4 Ps) involves getting the product from the manufacturer to the
ultimate consumer. Distribution is often a much underestimated factor in
marketing. Many marketers fall for the trap that if you make a better
product, consumers will buy it. The problem is that retailers may not be
willing to devote shelf-space to new products. Retailers would often
rather use that shelf-space for existing products have that proven records
of selling.

Distributors add efficiency by:

Breaking bulkthe consumer can buy small quantities at a time.


Small and modest scale retailers (e.g., the USC bookstore) can buy
modest quantities. This service reduces quantity discrepancy in the
supply-demand relationship between manufacturers and end
customers.

Consolidation and Distribution. It would be highly inconvenient


for customers to have to buy each product at a different store. Most
American consumers today also have limited patience with
specialty stores in most categories. Rather than having to go to one
store to buy produce, one store to buy meat, and other stores for
other household products, there is considerable value in having
everything available in a supermarket.. This reduces costs by
increasing the efficiency with which products can be (1) delivered
and (2) received. Consolidation and distribution services offered
by wholesalers reduce the assortment discrepancy between
manufacturers on the one hand and local retailers and consumers
on the other.

Carrying inventory. This service reduces the temporal


discrepancy between
o

Manufacturers who may need to schedule production


at relatively constant levels and consumers who need
certain products only at certain times (e.g., turkeys
needed mostly at Thanksgiving and Christmas)

Financing. Certain small manufacturers may have difficulty


waiting for payment until goods are sold to the endcustomer. Wholesalers and retailers may negotiate lower
prices from the manufacturer in return for quick payment.

Many of the cost savings associated with having an efficient system of


intermediaries result from specialization. Manufacturers specialize in
what they do wellmanufacturing productswhile others specialize in
handling various phases of the distribution path. Some specialize in
retailingusually selling a large assortment of goods in small quantities
to a large number of end customers. Wholesalers, in turn, specialize in

moving and goods from numerous manufacturers to a large number of


retailers.
Channel structures vary somewhat by the nature of the product.

Full service retailers tend dislike intensive distribution.

Low service channel members can "free ride" on full service


sellers.

Manufacturers may be tempted toward intensive


distributionappropriate only for some; may be profitable
in the short run.

Market balance suggests a need for diversity in product


categories where intensive distribution is appropriate.

Service requirements differ by product category.
