The Global Distributors Collective (GDC) is a collective of last mile distributors around the world. We are dedicated to supporting distributors to help them reach millions of underserved communities with beneficial products, and to developing the last mile distribution sector as a whole.

We have over 200 members in over 60 countries, who have reached over 40 million people in last mile households with beneficial products such as solar lights, clean cookstoves and water filters.

Our ambition is to make last mile distribution the first priority so that beneficial household products can be made affordable and available to all.
