Product distribution the the process of making a product or service available for the consumer or business that needs it. Distribution is fundamentally concerned with ensuring that products reach the target customers inmost direct and cost efficient manner. As a concept, distribution is relatively simple, in practice distribution management may involve a diverse range of activities and disciplines including: detailed logistics, transportation, warehousing, storage, inventory management as well as channel management including selection of channel members and rewarding distributors.  Distribution is a cycle process involving many different links within the organizations. This is for example if you want to mass produced bulk of clothing and deliver it into your customers, that's when the distribution happens.

This is simply the act of distributing goods and products using the necessary channels to those that may be in need of it. Product distribution can always be achieved when channel of distribution is being effectively utilized. As a business person and a manufacturer of a good, you should always decide when it is right to make use of the middleman to distribute your goods and also when it is necessary for us to distribute the products ourselves.

There are three middlemen in the chain of distribution which are the agents, the wholesalers, and the retailers. While the work of the the agent is to ensure that goods that are finished are distributed to the wholesaler especially when the producer is someone that is always busy as well. The wholesaler and the retailer ensures that they goods get to the final consumers.

Distribution is the process of making a product or service available for the consumer as per requirements. This process can be done by producer or service provider. Wholesale distributor takes products from manufacturer and distributed to the retailers. The other three elements of the marketing are product, pricing and promotion.  Some of the people work as product distributor and wholesale distributors. Wholesale distributors have warehouses, distribution center and to provide the customers. Al Maya Distribution is among the leading top product distribution or food distribution service provider in UAE.  Food distributors are those concerns that basically deals with the distribution of different kinds of foods under varied brands. They are maintain a huge network so that the chain of distribution can be maintained with great efficiency. Hope it useful !!!

Product distribution is the act of getting products through different channels of distribution to the final destination which is usually the consumers. Production always begins from the manufacturer then to the wholesaler or agent then to the retailer which will now get to the final consumers.
The manufacturers are like the producers or originator of a product, wholesalers are those that buy in bulk from the producers and will now sell in small quantities to the retailers. Relatiler now sells in bit to Consumers and have varieties of items to sell. They can also grant after sale service especially if it concern items like electronics that needs fixing and copuling to put it in order and finally consumer is always the last people on the chain. They just buy to eat.

The distribution of products, basically, is the process involved in series of translocation of goods and services from one part of the world to the other. And it could been seen as the perfect arrangement that enables the movement of manufactured goods from one place to the other. This whole process is facilitated by what is known as chain of production.

Chain production describes all the stages goods and services have to pass through from the manufacturer to the consumer. However, the distribution of these products comprises of essential stages, which are the:

Production stage; this deals with manufacturing of particular products by production companies, that needs to be distributed to the buyers.

Wholesale stage; this stage is made up of those big buck owners that buy the mamufactured products from the production houses(companies) so that they can further be distributed to the other buyers.

Retail stage; the retail stage deals with people who can't buy products directly from the production houses, but instead capitalize on the reduction in prize of these products bought by the wholesalers by buying from them directly.

Consumer stage; this stage happens to be the final phase of products distribution, as it affords those who are the final consumers with the opportunity of buying already finished products in small quantities with relatively lower prizes.
