Japan Distributor Search
Matching clients with optimal medical device distributions in Japan through a local distributor search is just one of the sales support services offered by Asia Actual. Our experienced personnel help manufacturers successfully enter the complicated markets of southeast Asia through a customized approach specific to each manufacturer’s product line.
MEDICAL DEVICE DISTRIBUTOR SEARCH
The supply chain in Japan is short and efficient, but turnover is high as distributors come and go from the market. Asia Actual provides a (virtual) master distributor service that provides stability to foreign manufacturers. Our experienced local partners in Japan can also help identify, screen and sign optimal distributors for medical or IVD devices.
- Supply Chain Evaluation: We evaluate the supply chain and all sales channel options to identify distributors that can deliver products to targeted market segments as efficiently and effectively as possible.
- Distributor Screening: We use a robust internal database of specialty medical device distributors to screen potential distributor candidates for client-specified qualifications. This systematic approach is augmented with local market insight, research and a network of industry contacts.
TARGET-SPECIFIC SALES STRATEGIES
Disciplined targeting of appropriate market segments is particularly important in a complex market such as Japan. Asia Actual identifies target market segments and hospitals within those segments. This helps companies work with regional and local distributors to evaluate individual hospitals and develop targeted sales strategies.
DISTRIBUTION CONTRACT DESIGN AND REVIEW
Asia Actual helps design and review international distribution agreements for use in Japan. In addition to addressing local market particularities, we advise on key issues in transfer pricing and target sales volumes. Having an informed local expert to facilitate and expedite negotiations provides a valuable competitive advantage.
