Who we are

ICDP (short for the International Car Distribution Programme) is a research-based organisation focused on automotive distribution, including the supply and retailing of new and used vehicles, after sales, network structures and operations.

Through our research activities, data services, education, events and consulting, we work with vehicle makers, dealers, suppliers, and a wide range of related organisations to improve the quality and effectiveness of the automotive distribution model, at a time when changing behaviours, new technologies, and market pressures, are combining to drive new ways of doing business.

ICDP was founded in 1994 with the launch of our first international collaborative research programme, and we are proud still to be working with many of our founder member organisations from across the automotive sector and around the world.
