NAW president: How distributors should respond to Amazon
The threat of Amazon to distributors should not be overlooked, but the best companies have always responded to market changes by focusing on delivering for customers, according to National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors President Dirk Van Dongen. He said one factor that will help is a law that requires online sellers to collect sales taxes on transactions. Amazon has had an advantage because it had avoided collecting such taxes, but the Marketplace Fairness Act, if it became law, would "level the playing field," Van Dongen said. TED Magazine (5/23)
