Contract distribution is a legal agreement between a business (supplier) and a distributor, where each party has its own roles and responsibilities for the supply, movement and delivery of goods. For business owners, running a fleet alongside running a business creates a multitude of challenges, so using contract distribution is an attractive option. Here are some of the reasons why contact distribution can benefit your business.
Time management – Having a contact distribution agreement in place allows you to hand over the responsibility of getting goods to where they need to be to a third-party, so you can get on with other aspects of running your business. This means no additional time is spent on administration and organisation associated with running your own fleet of vehicles, or the processes involved in supply chain and delivery to customers.
Keeps costs low – with a contract distribution agreement, there is no need to invest in your own transport and maintenance, warehousing, or management of running the distribution side of your business. If you have fluctuations with the number of goods needing to be shipped or the frequency of consignments, using a contact agreement evens out the costs as facilities are always in place and up and running.
Operational benefits – when you have a contract agreement with a distributor, operations run smoothly. There is no downtime associated with vehicles being off the road, drivers taking time off work, or other disruptions to service that could affect your reputation with customers.
Expertise – The laws, rules and regulations surrounding distribution across the globe are always changing and evolving, and this can present many challenges for businesses shipping goods nationally and worldwide. With a contract distribution agreement, those with the knowledge and expertise in the industry will be able to find the most efficient, secure, and cost-effective solutions for any consignment.
