In business language, how could you say: local knowledge of the territory?

As in: The company has a deep knowledge of the territory, i.e., logistics, suppliers, clients and people knowledge, etc.


One phrase to consider is regional expertise. This suggests knowledge of all of the special aspects of the region in question.

An alternative might be market expertise. Market is often used to refer to a geographic area, although in some fields it may refer to a broad product or service sector.

  1. a geographic area of demand for commodities or services
  2. a specified category of potential buyers
  • what do you think of regional market expertise? – Jess Stone Feb 5 '14 at 12:38
  • That suggests geography, product and demographic knowledge. If it is not too wordy for your material, it sounds fine. – bib Feb 5 '14 at 12:42
  • ok. I also wonder what less wordy expressions there could be – Jess Stone Feb 5 '14 at 13:23
