Intensive distribution

Intensive distribution is a strategy in which they stock their products in as many outlets as possible. These products must be available where and when consumers want them. For example, toothpaste, candy, and other similar items are sold in millions of outlets to provide maximum brand exposure and consumer convenience. Kraft, Coca-Cola, Kimberly-Clark, and other consumer goods companies distribute their products in this way.


Intensive distribution is the distribution strategy that involves placing a firm’s products in nearly every available outlet.
