Exclusive Distribution:

18 Exclusive Distribution Exclusive: Limiting the distribution to only one intermediary in the territory LEICA was officially appointed Jebsen & Jebsen Marketing as the exclusive distributor for Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei A main factor in choosing J&J was its expertise in “high-quality technical products on the consumer market.” Source: Smartinvestor , Singapore Ed. June 2000 Advantages: Maximize control over service level/output Enhance product’s image & allow higher markups Promotes dealers loyalty, better forecasting, better inventory and merchandising control Restricts resellers from carrying competing brands Disadvantages: Betting on one dealer in each market Only suitable for high price, high margin, and low volume products

Intensive Distribution:

19 Intensive Distribution Intensive: Distribute from as many outlets as possible to provide location convenience Ex: Newspapers, Most fast moving consumer goods you see in the newsstand Photo processing shops Advantages: Increased sales, wider customer recognition, and impulse buying Disadvantages: Characteristically low price and low-margin products that require a fast turnover Difficult to control large number of retailers

Selective Distribution:

Homegrown family-owned JTA Motors market Daewoo’s offroad vehicles like the Musso and Korando , and an upmarket model called the Chairman. (Source: BT, Motoring, Feb4/1999) Advantages: Better market coverage than exclusive distribution More control and less cost than intensive distribution Concentrate effort on few productive outlets Selected firms capable of carrying full product line and provide the required service Disadvantages: May not cover the market adequately Difficult to select dealers (retailers) that can match your requirement and goals
