UK distribution: the complex journey from factory to vape store shelf

The UK has well-developed and complicated distribution channels for e-cigarette products. There are manufacturers with their own distribution networks, subsidiaries of foreign manufacturers, resellers, wholesalers, and distributors who all have relationships with vape stores.

Choosing an appropriate supplier depends on the products and services being offered, as well as the relationships that vape stores have with them.

The distribution network is complicated because vape stores use a range of different companies to purchase their stock, according to our industry contacts.
