Abstract: As globalization has spread to each and every corner of the world, the importance of supply management has increased drastically. In highly competitive atmosphere and cut throat competition, optimization of resources is main focus. Customer Service and product satisfaction has become very critical. Consumers are very sensitive to quality services as well as pricing. For maintaining profitability of supply chain various costs are to be optimized at required consumer service level. The cost is increased due to lack of coordination between various functions such as Inventory and distribution. The focus is shifted from individual function optimization to combined optimization of these two functions, i.e. coordination of inventory and distribution. Therefore focus of research is concentrated on impact of inventory and distribution coordination on Supply Chain performance. A Descriptive Survey on prominent supply chain players was done and four performance indicators were found to have positively impact on inventory distribution coordination statistically. Other part of research concentrated on comparing effects on performance between industries supporting inventory distribution coordination and others who did not. The results of t-test conducted proved that the performance of industries supporting inventory coordination is better than that of not supporting. newline
