Distribution network strategy: Bottom-up vs top-down

Some equipment manufactures only want to work with distributors, separately, and not source this service to their contract manufacturers. In such cases, in your distributor selection process, one of the most important decisions you will make is based on which geographical level you want to consolidate and leverage your spending: country-based, regional-based or globally.

Some questions manufacturers must ask themselves include: How many facilities or branches do we have around the world? What are the functions, hence purchasing needs, of each branch? Which countries do we have branches in? Which factors can influence my purchasing strategy specific to a particular country? Should I be looking at a broader region than my current local market or, perhaps globally?
