Distribution and Consumer Packaged Goods

Industrial goods distributors
  • Distribution is a tough game. Consumer packaged goods distribution is even more so.

    Today's retail industry is in the midst of a major metamorphosis. Ever-increasing consumer demands, social media and the Internet, and mobile purchasing are just a few of the factors changing the face of the industry. To remain competitive retailers have to become more creative. Many are looking to alternative channels including catalogues and online sales and almost all are trying to shave prices and increase efficiencies.

    As they do so, retailers are also putting intense pressure on their distributors. Everyone wants more for less and as a result, distributors are finding that consumer packaged goods margins are being squeezed. This is where JIWA can assist.
