Distribution within an organization relates to processes, people and interrelations between other organizations which connect the production of the products and services to their end-users. It is a chain of elements that, when connected, provides a smooth flow of orders and fulfilment across the business. It can be long and distributed or short and concise and, like any chain, it is only as strong as its weakest link. This handbook from the Cambridge Marketing College series analyzes and assesses the different distribution models and identifies the key issues related to determining distribution strategy across an organization. It provides a concise guide to identifying the key distribution activities within a wide variety of national, international, physical and on-line businesses and how to relate the experiences of other businesses within a company.
