French term or phrase: circuit dépositaire
I'm translating the "carte d'identité" of a pharmaceutical company presenting itself and its activities. Here's the context:

XXXX assure la distribution de vos produits par:
le circuit grossiste
le circuit dépositaire

Thanks!

agent network
Explanation:
The difference between dépositaire and grossiste is that the dépositaire does not buy the goods and then sell them on like a wholesaler. The goods are sold through him, not by him, so he's not a wholesaler, but an agent.
