What is the difference between a commercial agent and a distributor?

A commercial agent is an independent entrepreneur or company which brokers business for the manufacturer against commission or which concludes business on behalf of the manufacturer. The distributor, on the other hand, acquires the goods from the manufacturer and resells them in his own name and for his own account to the customer by adding his margin.
