For one major oil company operating throughout Europe, its knowledge of many of its international distributors was limited to little more than the tonnage delivered to each of them. Recognizing the weakness of its position, it took steps to address the situation by investing heavily in understanding the business model and modus operandi of its distributors in order to increase not only its market knowledge, but the effectiveness and efficiency of compensation paid to each distributor. The distributor also acts to a greater or lesser degree as an outsourced front office for the supplier, providing the channel development function – recruiting new partners, the supplier’s local or territory representative and providing services such as warranty or pre- and post-sales support.
