Distributors in Poland

distributor in Poland represents an intermediary between the producer of a good and another business organization within the supply chain or distribution channel, like a value-added reseller, a retailer or a system integrator. 

Selling different types of goods through a distribution agreementin Poland may present multiple advantages, for both parties involved. Some of these advantages consist of:

• the distributor always finds methods of distributing and selling the entire product stock;

• a distribution agreement creates certain advantages for the supplier, such as not being required to be established in Poland, therefore minimizing the costs involved in setting up a local business

• the risks involving the transaction will be suffered by the distributor, since the supplier cannot be responsible for any responsibility connected to the goods. Our Polish law firm can offer more details on this aspect.
