The Global Distributors Collective
Slider

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.

Calling all innovators!

Our second Innovation Challenge is now live! This year, we're crowd-sourcing and piloting exciting ideas that help to make last mile distribution more resilient. Do you have an innovation you'd like to bring to life?
