"Winning with Full-Service DSD" Research Study Webinar 

Webinar presented on Tuesday, January 12, 2021.

IAICDV's Distributor Division and George Crocker of Brickyard Associates presented the much-anticipated findings from the 2020 research study. This exclusive, member-only webinar featured Crocker's in-depth, specific interviews from five (5) experts in each channel (Drug, Convenience, Dollar and Small Format Supermarket) with the following goals in mind:

  • Explore the value of the Full-Service Direct Store Delivery model (FSDSD) over competing models, particularly Broadline/Self Directed distribution, in serving certain large customer segments (C-store, Drug, Dollar, and Grocery).  
  • Understand how customers in those core segments are looking at this comparison (FSDSD vs Broadline), what their quantitative and qualitative considerations are, and how compelling the FSDSD offering is in their eyes as compared to the Broadline alternative.
  • Develop a selling presentation for IAICDV member use that articulates the best possible sales pitch for the superiority of FSDSD over alternatives.
