Horizontal marketing system

Horizontal marketing system is a channel arrangement in which two more companies at one level join together to follow a new marketing opportunity. By working together, companies can combine their financial, production, or marketing resources to accomplish more than any one company could alone. Companies might join forces with competitors or noncomnpetitors. They might work with each other on a temporary or permanent basis, or they may create a separate company.
