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 is 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 is 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.

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
