The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors' Distribution Research and Education Foundation (DREF) was expected to release a new book on pricing and margin management for wholesaler-distributors by the end of October. “Price for Success: A Practical Guide for Improving Margins in Wholesale Distribution” by Anthony Pericle, founder and principal of Advanous, Richmond, Va., is a resource guide on pricing for distributors interested in driving higher margins. The book draws from three primary resources: survey responses from 200 wholesale distribution executives, in-depth interviews with 50 senior distribution executives, and the experiences of Advanous' team members, who have provided margin management services to numerous distributors across diverse lines of trade.
