Quick Reference

The sale of goods to distributors, rather than the general public. Wholesale traders usually deal in larger quantities than retailers: they break bulk and sell in smaller quantities than their purchases from manufacturers. Wholesalers are able to compete with direct sales by manufacturers to retailers through economies of scale and scope in stock-holding and transport.
