Horizontal Marketing System

An agreement between two or more companies at the same level in the supply chain to work together on marketing for the good of all parties. For example, two retailers in different areas (which therefore are not competing directly) may pool their marketing resources so as to help each other in their respective locations. See also: Synergy.
