Creating a distribution business plan is key in order to organize your thoughts, lay out your future goals, and potentially interest funders. Distribution businesses specialize in anything from perishables such as seafood, coffee, or beer to consumer goods like furniture or bikes. Key to a distribution business is obtaining your products at low cost before marking them up enough to make a sustainable, significant profit. A distribution business might serve as a wholesaler, selling products to other businesses from the manufacturer, or serve as the link between a business and the general public. Wholesale distributors command $3.2 trillion in annual sales, according to Entrepreneur.com. No matter who your customers are, you'll probably need a sizable warehouse to store your products before you distribute them.
Key components of a distribution business plan are as follows:
• An executive summary that provides a brief, high-level overview
• A summary of your products and key services
• Details about your customers and a market analysis
• A look at your competitors and how you'll differentiate your distribution business
• Your planned strategy for marketing and advertising
• Financial forecasts for the first few years
