A distribution agreement is a contract between two parties in which one party (the “supplier”) agrees to allow the other party (the “distributor”) to distribute the products manufactured by the supplier. It may be used for many different types of products.
A distribution agreement sets out the terms and conditions upon which the distributor agrees to distribute the products. This may include prohibiting the distributor from distributing other similar products, it may appoint the distributor with exclusive distribution rights, or it may specify multiple distributors in circumstances where the agreement is non-exclusive.
