Driven by online sales and an improved economy, the U.S. distribution industry is growing. According to the 2014 McGladrey Manufacturing & Distribution Monitor survey, 39 percent of distributors described themselves as thriving, an uptick from 32 percent in 2013. A lower percentage of distributors say they are holding steady or declining than in 2013, and growth remains relatively steady overall.
