Some of the issues related to distribution include:
- Distribution channels
- Market coverage
- Distribution centers
- Inventory management – This operation is critical when it comes to cash flow and efficiencies. Having what a client needs right away is important but having too much inventory sitting around can be expensive and will slow cash flow.
- Order processing – This includes the frequency of taking and executing orders and how often you can serve a client.
- Product transportation
Deciding on the best distribution channel and placement for your product can drive the price most of the time, but remember to keep all the other issues in mind as you finalize this decision.
