There will usually be several distributors competing in the market, creating a more price-competitive environment, leading to lower margins on product sales.

As a result market share leaders tend to be better served by the broadliner as their scale of business ensures high visibility and share of mind among the distributor’s sales and marketing teams.

Most distributors break bulk to quantities nearer that required by the end-customer, such as case-quantities for wine and spirits in alcoholic drink distribution. Many distributors do very little genuine ‘wholesaling’, ie in large volumes, but sell in ones and twos, as their customers effectively trade back-to-back in the volumes required by individual end-customers.
