Having a distribution plan or partner is critical for the continued success of any product-based business, regardless of the size their company may be. While you could hire a designated, on-site team to fulfill shipping orders, it likely isn’t always the best approach. In this article, we will look at some of the reasons you should use a distributor for your company and provide you with the information needed to make sure you find the right distribution partner.
While possible, in-house distribution can become very expensive and time-consuming, especially as your business begins to scale up. For instance, if your business begins to expand you will have to quickly adjust your distribution department as well. This means more materials, vehicles and employees to complete your orders and meet standard delivery times under normal circumstances. For this reason, most companies with work with an external distributor that already has the resources needed to support your business.

Some of the other ways an external distributor can help your company include:
