This research focusses on the spatial functioning of the wholesale sector in The Netherlands. Wholesale businesses play an important role in the distribution of goods. They stimulate the flow of goods towards the final consumer by means of their intermediate position in the distribution channel. The main question of this research is whether there is a link between the position of wholesale businesses in the distribution channel and their spatial choice of location. An important conclusion of this research is that the functional dynamics, such as the up scaling of business and (international) business concentration, within the wholesale sector in general and the wholesale branch of electro-technical goods in particular, do not find expression in clear spatial dynamics, in the sense of up scaling the spatial distribution structure. - (AGD)
