About Us

While the economy continues to add jobs on its way to a full recovery, the wholesale distribution industry continues to post steady gains and outpace overall growth. According to the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors, durable good trade was up 5.8 percent and nondurable trade was up 4.5 percent year-over-year, for total sales of $5.40 trillion. More remarkable for the industry is that nearly all segments of wholesale trade are rising and contributing to this growth. This data, coupled with reductions in unemployment, point to continuous growth in 2016 and affirms the wholesale and distribution sector offers unprecedented opportunities for growth and expansion, across business and product types.

Executives in this fast-paced industry face pressure from all sides – from manufacturers that want to ensure their products are marketed and sold correctly, to retailers and customers that demand on-time deliveries and favorable pricing. Additionally, emerging markets in Russia, China, India and Brazil bring with them tremendous prospects, but extend a whole set of new challenges for executives in the industry. Wholesale & Distribution International is the must-read trade publication for distribution leaders that want to stay informed of the latest trends and challenges in this dynamic marketplace.

Through our print and digital publications, website, industry associations and independent editorial, Wholesale & Distribution International ensures these policymakers are kept up-to-date on the latest trends and challenges in distribution and wholesaling. Each issue profiles dozens of successful distributors and wholesalers of both durable and nondurable goods, and features in-depth interviews with retailers and the distribution sector’s leading executives. You can also turn to our web site, Facebook page and Twitter page to keep abreast of trends and news in the industry as they happen. Wholesale & Distribution International is the just-in-time vehicle for industry leaders who want to read about, reach and influence the top decision-makers throughout the distribution and wholesale industry.
