The Distribution house is one of the first buildings you can build. Because the collection of goods is done by the Distribution houses' Market Carts, every production building has to be placed in the influence area of a Distribution House and both buildings have to be connected by a Road. You'll receive a warning if you want to place a production building outside the influence areas of your Distribution house.

As the Harbourmaster's office serves the same purpose, it is (in the beginning of the game) only necessary to build Distribution houses if you place your production buildings outside the influence area of the Harbourmaster's office.
