P2 Introduction This task involves the distribution process. I will look at the distribution process and how goods are transported from the manufacturer to the customer.

Distribution Channel This channel can simply be the networks of organisation which work together and make necessary actions to link with one example for example link producers with customers. There can different ways of the distribution channel and a number of ways which all can be used for all different types of products.

This can show that the business in trust worthy and could be the main reason on why Tesco have there own branded products. These products which are produced also need to be distributed well. I will pick out a product that is produced by the business and go into the process in which it gets from the manufacturer all the way through then finally to the customer. The product that I will choose from the business will be the self branded crisp products. The process of this product will be different from other products such as clothing. This specific product will be harvest and made on a farm within the UK. This farm will grow the ingredients required for example potatoes. As like any other product will have a sell by date which means it has to be distributed quickly and so it will be transported to headquarters of Tesco by using transport on road. From the headquarters this product then will be sorted out and finally transported to the retailers and then sold to the customers. Looking in detail at Tesco will its storage and transport, it should be highlighted by them that the business is well structured and organised so that the product they have is in right place at the right time for their customers. ...read more.

Conclusion

As the business is a small retailer they will not have the space to keep the entire product on the shop floor. Also the business will have a stock room to keep these products or clothing. The transport which will be used for their product will be through water and road the reason this is the products will travel though water within a ship which will work most efficient as it will be in large quantity. However it will take a long time as there is a lot of distance to be travelled. When they reach England these products will be taken to a warehouse by using the road through Lorries or maybe other suitable vehicles. After this is done the product will reach the business so that they can be sold. Club JJ's will many stages within the distribution process this is because they are an independent retailer. The above diagram can show the distribution process for Club JJ's. Conclusion In this task I have talked about distribution process.

In this task I have also looked at two contrasting businesses in which I have looked down within the distribution process for example the different distribution channels, logistics and methods of transportation for these individual businesses. ?? ?? ?? ??
