This paper is to study the distributor's role in the supply chain. Some studies of Supply Chain Management (SCM) concentrate on how to create a responsive chain that links the manufacturer directly with the retailer to deal with volatile demand. However, the authors discuss the role of the distributor who acts as an intermediary between the manufacturer and the retailer. This kind of distributor should act as a push and pull boundary in the supply chain.
