Finding a distributor in every country who will meet production MOQs is near impossible these days. Reducing MOQs increases shipping cost/unit and reduces economies of scale and increases administrative costs.
Using a network of 1-4 sub-distributors in each country, our partner LUBA GmbH, can guarantee a swift and cost effective way for your expansion. All European orders are processed and shipped from their central warehouse in Germany or through LUBA Distribution Ltd’s warehouse for orders in the UK, Ireland and Cyprus.
Utilising this model means that you deal with just a single point of contact for a multitude of territories regarding forecasting, order placement, customer service questions, R&D feedback, marketing and billing.
We work on consignment basis with suppliers which means we can keep our margins extremely low while enabling you to make executive decisions on the products you wish to launch, the stock levels you want to be held, when to produce and ship and can even remove stock from our warehouse to satisfy shortages anywhere in the world with absolute ease as if it were simply an external warehouse.
Did you know?: If your company invests just 1 hour per week managing each of your distributor relationships, order & payment processing, you might find this can cost you more than 175 hours per month!
This master distribution model not only cuts down on hours of admin, but also removes any language & time zone barriers that often are costly to business.
Did you know?: According to the ‘Encyclopedia of the Languages of Europe’ there are are 44 countries within Europe (28 in the EU), yet there are a staggering 275 languages being spoken!
