The Pet Industry Distributors Association would like to introduce you to the Power of D — the value distributors bring to the supply chain in the pet industry. Some feel that consolidation at the distributor level has reduced the Power of D. Don’t be fooled. Though distributors are fewer in number than in years past, the volume of products and dollars flowing through the channel is greater than ever.
The Power of Effective Distribution
You can avoid the distributor, but you can't avoid the cost of distribution. Getting your product to one distributor gets it to hundreds or thousands of retail stores.
Setting Up a Distribution Network
Establishing a distribution network is often the first order of business among manufacturers launching new products, product lines or line extensions in the pet industry.
Getting Your Products to Market
The Power of D is moving products through the channel effectively. Working with distributors drives cost out of the channel and get your products to market faster.
The Marketing Partnership
When it comes to sales and marketing, the Power of D is relationships. Retail relationships — perhaps thousands of them — are what a distributor brings to the table.
