1. LEA CUIDADOSAMENTE LA SIGUIENTE CONVERSACIÓN:

Susan: Good morning Mr. White.

Mr. White: Good morning, Ms. Susan. Can we start the meeting?
Susan: Of course, Mr. White. I have the options on the board.

Mr. White: That’s good. Remember, we need to choose the most suitable distribution strategy
for our products.

Susan: We have three strategies: Intensive, exclusive and selective. Intensive strategy pretends
to reach the largest possible number of POS (Point of Sale), but unfortunately it’s difficult to
control. That’s because we would have to deal with many intermediaries.

Mr. White: What about the exclusive strategy?

Susan: It’s different from the first one. Only it’s necessary one POS by each geographic area,
no matter if it’s retailer or wholesaler.

Mr. White: Sounds god to me. And the last one?

Susan: Well, it’s the selective strategy. It’s the intermediate strategy between the other ones.

Mr. White: I don’t know. I like the first one, but I don’t know how profitable it is. Hhhhmmm,
well. What do you think?

Susan: Well, I consider that the selective strategy is the best.

Mr. White: You’re right. Well done.

Susan: Thanks, Mr. White.

POSTERIORMENTE:

Economic aspects – understanding of cannel emergence

Economic reasons are the foremost determinant of channel structure. The


emergence of the wide variety of intermediaries can be explained in terms of four
logically related steps in an economic process:

• Intermediaries can increase the efficiency of the process of exchange,


• They align the quantities and assortments produced with the quantities and
assortments consumed,
• They make transactions routine, and
• They facilitate the searching process.

Dependence and cooperation

Each member of a distribution channel is dependent upon the behaviour of other


channel members. Four different approaches have been used to assess dependence
levels in channel relationships:

• The ‘sales and profit’ approach, which postulates that the larger the percentage
of sales and profit contributed by the source firm, the greater the target’s
dependence on the source.
• The ‘role performance’ approach, which assesses the firm’s role performance
in carrying out its role in relation to another company down or up the channel.

• The ‘specific assets –offsetting investment’ approach, which maintains that


offsetting investments help to safeguard the target company against
opportunism by the source.

• The ‘trust’ approach, in which a long-term relationship is built on the extent to


which companies trust one another.1
