Distribution management is a process of creating and developing product distribution network between the source (Producer) and end user (consumer). This process includes, determination of distribution area, deployment of staff, product delivery methodology, distribution channel or supply chain and warehousing. In normal terms a distribution network is a bridge between manufacturer and consumer that carry goods from source location to point of sales (POS), where from the customer purchase his goods.
The style and structure of supply chain will vary according to the infrastructure and the business volume of a company. Large companies, particularly dealing with the FMCG and Pharmaceuticals, are found to adopt a number of channels to reach out their goods to customers.
But small companies, those who are operating in small area are dealing directly with distributors or wholesalers. The strategy behind choosing a distribution network depends upon the product nature and size, production volume, operational area, management capabilities and frequency of end user consumption.
Area determination: Determining an operational area is a primary function of the management. Where we will distribute and how we will design geographical hierarchy are most important aspects in this process. Deployment of sales force, sales planning, method of product delivery, promotional criteria, inventory and warehousing management should be according to this planning.
