Who is and what does the independent distributor do? Are you sure you know this important figure in the market?
The independent distributoris a professional figure that could be placed between the manufacturer and the retailer. In everyday language, it is often referred to as a wholesaler, because it buys large quantities directly from manufacturers to resell them, divided into small quantities, to other entities in the supply chain or distribution.
In the electronics section, independent distributors play a much more dynamic role than other sectors, especially raw material distributors, as the market in this sector is very dynamic and things change rapidly. In fact, in addition to managing purchases, payments and logistics, they also provide real consulting services to buyers. The purpose is to make them understand the possibilities that the market offers so that it is the customer himself who gives the objectives to be achieved according to his needs, in terms of price, the timing of supply, number of pieces, and type of product.
Electronics is a field in which innovations are practically in order of the day and where everything becomes easily and quickly obsolete. So it is necessary to get supplies from those who are always on the piece, indeed it is always a step ahead.
One question arises: why there is still an intermediary and why can’t buy directly from the manufacturer?
The answer is very simple: it is always easier for companies to work with a limited number of distributors rather than having to deal with dozens and dozens of sellers, building a system that would require them to hire a dedicated staff and then face additional costs. The independent distributor, on the other hand, is always one step ahead.
