This study investigates whether such heterogeneity in the variety of routes to market can be explained systematically. More specifically, the authors examine how (1) the type and level of a firm's customer orientation and (2) the type and degree of customer search behavior influences the firm's adoption of a variety of routes. They collect primary data on 210 firms in four consumer industries across three countries to test the hypotheses. The authors find strong evidence for a link between a firm's customer orientation and the breadth of its variety of routes but only partial evidence for a link between customer search behavior and the breadth of the variety of routes.
