About Us

Who We Are

Online Distribution Ltd (ODL) was established in 1990 as a supplier of quality products to the Service Station industry in New Zealand.

100% New Zealand owned, based in Penrose, Auckland, Online Distribution soon became a strong alternative to other established distributors and a preferred supplier to all major groups in this industry.

Having extremely close relationships with all suppliers, ODL has also become the preferred option for handling new product launches into this sector.

Operating from a 2000 m2 warehouse Online Distribution now provides nationwide service for confectionery, grocery, snack foods, drinks, automotive, consumable and cleaning products. ODL continues to meet the needs of the Service Station retail convenience trade and also provides product distribution to other selected customers throughout the country.

Online Distribution is technologically advanced with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) capability and also provides a personalised service through their call centre. Many customers to this day still prefer to phone, email and fax orders through.


With a long-standing and dedicated team of employees, we are committed to providing a personalised and professional service, to ensure our customer’s needs are met on a daily basis. Our experienced territory managers have a great understanding of their individual customer requirements and are committed to scheduled on-site visits and product support.

With many years of experience in the Service Station industry, and also other retail environments, we are committed to ensure each individuals business is efficiently handling stock and therefore maximising profitability.

We continue to place a strong emphasis on any up to date product ranges and providing competitive products with consistency of supply, always prioritising the interests of our customers.

We look forward to continuing to work with our customers and building long lasting relationships, to enhance their sales and profitability.
