Summary
  • Distributors are becoming the service provider of choice for retailers implementing special-order programs for their customers as distributor inventory management and delivery systems are enhanced. MSI Inc consultant Eric Mehler says it is a natural progression for distributors; a report from the company states that drop shipping represents only a small percentage of the total US wholesale computer distributor revenue, but it is expected to become an important service as retailers attempt to increase their presence with limited resources. Special-order programs support direct shipment to the customer's home and become a customer service feature, and while end-user fulfillment tempts distributors to sell the product directly, most distributors claim that they have no intention of becoming direct marketers. Retail/​distributor special-order partnerships include Tandy Corp's Computer City SuperCenters and Ingram Micro, Montgomery Ward and Merisel Inc, and Babbage's Inc and American Software &​ Hardware Distributors Inc.
