    I didnt really get ur question... When trading internationally, local methods of transportation cannot always be used. For example, a supplier can send his goods from China to Chine by trucks, cars etc. but when the same supplier exports to UK, trucks cannot be used. A airways or seaways as a mean of distribution channel is needed.
    This is what i got from a website ''Distribution plays a key role in the success of international marketing strategy. It ensures that a company can deliver products and services to international customers efficiently and cost effectively. Members of the distribution channel also provide an important local marketing resource that enables a company to increase market share or enter new markets with the backing of local knowledge and established business relationships. Companies developing a global branding strategy can use a distribution channel to extend their brand into new territories.''

    Im really pissed at the fact that some subjects have a HUGE discussion thread realating to the exams but why the f*** aren't there many students for Business Studies? Is this subject not at all important? Even resources are limited... EDEXCEL is weird

    EU crisis came up in jan roughly
    Heres my link: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...999980390.html

    keep in mind mergers havent come up in a long time. its the biggest merger of 2011
    its written at the time when they usually gather data
    it involves china and a large mnc
    also they could ask questions like
    benefits of mergers
    its got a few things about glocalisation in it
    and possibly barriers to the chinese market

    keep in mind they have used this source in an earlier paper

    NOTE: IT VERY WELL MAY NOT BE THIS! BUT THERES A CHANCE
