One can define direct product distribution as when a producer can sell directly to their customers. No middleman, wholesaler, or retailer is needed in this specific scenario. Since no middleman is needed, this product distribution channel is the fastest and shortest route that can be taken. An example of this type of distribution channel is industrial machinery, as it is sold directly to the consumers from the business themselves.
There are a total of five different types of indirect product distribution channels, and they are listed below.
Hybrid, or multi-channel distribution systems, are often used when a single business or firm has two or more marketing channels to reach one or more customer segments. This specific type has become more popular over the years. One of the advantages of this is that it will expand the sales and market coverage as each new channel is developed and implemented. This directly allows for the business to have diverse customer segments. However, at times, this can be complicated and harder to control.
