You get the goods from Commission and Forwarding Agency on behalf of the manufacturers. An area for distribution is allotted to you which will have say 500 to 1000 shopts in couple of cities. You have to have your vehicles. Book the order either through phone/internet/through your sales persons. Keep the goods in vehicle along with the bill and deliver it. If it is cash business, the shops will pay the money. If it is credit, collect it after a week/fortnight. Maintain an inventory and keep ordering to replenish your stocks.
