Methods of Distribution Task 4 You need to write REPORT IN WHICH YOU. COMPARE THE METHODS USED TO DISTRUBIUTE TWO SELCETED PRODUCTS AND SERVICES In this report I will conduct a report on crickets and ASDA distribution systems. The distribution systems used by Cricket Distribution and planning is key to crickets clothing industry. Cricket would buy the garments from agents. The agents represent top designers such as Hugo boss, Vivienne Westwood. Cricket can only get their products of these specific people because they are designer brands. These products are designed abroad and they would be imported. These products would be sourced from places such as china, Italy, Vietnam and India. Managing cricket's distribution systems Cricket distributes all their garments from agents because they are designer labels. That is why the products are expensive because cricket is unable to cut out the middle man. Cricket's most cost effective form of transport would be by sea. As a lot of the labels are high end this means some of them would be designed and made in Europe. This means that they will be transported by road which is a cheaper method of transport. Designed labels would require space when shipping this would cost more and they would properly be delivered hanging. ...read more.


ASDA home delivery ASDA was known to have the best deliver system for a supermarket in the UK. ASDAS delivery system is highly utilized. This means ASDA have a whole new set of logistics and distribution channels. ASDA have a fleet of delivery vehicles with the facilities to store fresh, chilled, frozen and ambient goods. ASDA would have a separate distribution centre for the deliveries so that it is simple and clear. ASDA will have to have their distribution centre for deliveries well organized to pick pack and deliver millions of orders across the UK at the right place at the right time. Food retailing responsiveness This would be where the food is fresh and would need to be timed right and the accurate amount of quantity would have to be delivered. This food would not be shipped because it would take too long. For example if they were to ship fruit form Africa in to the UK then it would be off by the time they got it because fruit only last for a short period of time. Food retailers would have to get the seasonal demands right because in the summer more fruit will grow and they would have to take advantage of this so that they can make their profits. ...read more.


When a popular brand of food or clothing comes out then they will need to supply it a soon as possible. Both food and clothing will be sourced from all over the world and it will be expensive to distribute both of them. Both food and clothing will be supplied in large quantities because it is cheaper this way. Differences between food and clothing distribution The differences between food and clothing is that they will air food in and they will not for clothing because food needs to be fresh and the clothing retailers get more time to bring products in so they ship them in. With clothing the designs come out a while before they go on the selves so they get time to get the distribution right. Also food will need to be distributed quicker than clothing because of foods products needed to be fresh. With food they are always flying in the same kind of fruit and fish so they don't have to get the distribution as right as they do with clothing because it takes longer to ship cloths in and you have to wait for the designs to be made so that the retailers can copy them and make their own style. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
