When a manufacture is trying to select the best method of distribution they must look at the following: If the product is perishable very quickly the goods must be available to a wide range of shops show that it can be sold very quickly How often is the product purchased, if it is brought on a daily basis the it should also be available in a wide range of shops. A very good example is newspapers that are sold daily. People do not want to travel far for a paper Is the product sold to normal customers or producers? If the product needs lots of technical back up then it would be sold direct. This is because the manufacture will be able to provide the best technical backup. Where are the people you are selling to if they are over a wide area then you use retailers, if they were all in one area then you would sell direct The cost of product if the product costs lots of money then you will sell in retail shops where there are well of people. ...read more.
