COVID-19 and last mile distribution

Last mile distribution organisations (LMDs) are experiencing unprecedented challenges to their businesses and operations, as a result of the current COVID-19 crisis. Visit our COVID-19 resources hub for insights on strategies that GDC members have already adopted in the face of coronavirus, as well as a selection of tools, resources and funding opportunities we feel are particularly useful to help LMDs build resilience and survive.

COVID-19 Resource Hub

The Global Distributors Collective (GDC) is a collective of last mile distributors around the world. We have over 120 members in over 40 countries, who cumulatively have sold more than 8 million life-changing products to last mile households.

We are dedicated to supporting and representing last mile distribution companies to help them reach underserved customers with life-changing products like solar lights, clean cookstoves, water filters and nutrition products.

Our purpose is to make last mile distribution the first priority so that life-changing products can be made affordable and available to all.
