Wholesale and distribution businesses are an integral link in the supply chain between manufacturers and consumers. They serve as middlemen, responsible for moving products from the manufacturer to the retailer, or market. With over $5 trillion in annual sales and an extremely diverse market, the wholesale distribution industry offers plenty of opportunities for entrepreneurs looking to buy a profitable business.
The success of a distribution company largely depends on strategic price negotiations, efficient operations and the right product mix. Smaller companies can succeed by focusing on a niche product or market. Larger companies, on the other hand, reap the benefits of bulk purchasing and economies of scale that might enable them to choose a larger product mix and geographical area to focus on. Whether the business is small or large, it will need a headquarters that is secure and centrally located with ample space for storage and distribution. Monitoring buying trends, efficiently managing inventory and providing reliable schedules can quickly build a loyal client base and healthy bottom line.
Wholesale distribution is a game of both buying and selling, requiring strong, ongoing relationships with both manufacturers and retailers. Buying an established wholesale distribution business gives you the advantage to hit the ground running rather than building that essential customer base from scratch. Whether you want to distribute clothing, food, pharmaceuticals or electronics, BizQuest can get you connected with a large assortment of wholesale and distribution businesses for sale today!
