distribution system


Explanation:
The commonly used term is "distribution system." Here are a few citations:

"There is tremendous confusion and disagreement between automobile manufacturers and their dealer distribution system. The issue is: who's going to retail the product?"


http://elj.warwick.ac.uk/jilt/00-2/collard.html

"The confrontation between the logic of a distribution system reserved to a few resellers selected by producers (for points of sale that suit a geographical positioning strategy), and the development of the Internet was foreseeable...

3. Finally, the European automobile distribution system is based on a geographical division of markets, each being operated by manufacturers."

Sales processing system


Explanation:
Vertriebs- or Verkaufsabwicklung is translated as sales processing, hence I would use sales processing system for Vertriebsawicklungssystem.

The Schäfer gives order processing system for Auftragsabwicklungssystem, which is actually very close and could be a good alternative in your context.
