Literature on export has shown that the effectiveness and efficiency of distribution channel become a critical issue for export performance.

The importance of innovation including innovation in distribution channels as the driver of performance is inconclusive. Additionally, such a study is extremely limited in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Therefore, this study examines the impact of distribution channel innovation on the activities upon firm performance.

The clearer findings were found how the innovations lead to firm performance. It was indicated innovation in assortment, information sharing and transportation coordination led to greater firm performance. The result of the study also shows that distribution performance mediated the relationship between innovations in assortment, information sharing and transportation coordination, and firm performance.
