Introduction

Tesco operations Operations are a main department of Tesco because it is what they do to keep their business running. They do a lot of different activities to Cadbury as they run a completely different business. Their activities are buying, distribution and in store activities. Tesco's operations consist of buying their products and then distributing it to their branches and then finally selling it in their stores and keep customers happy. Buying is a very important operation for Tesco because if they didn't there would be no stock to sell. They have to be able to buy the products cheap to make a profit and sell it off for a bit more. To know what to buy and what the customers want they have to research on the customers needs this way both the company and customers will be happy. ...read more.

Instead of just ordering one product with not much of the lorry full they have a lorry full of all the different stock they need to be efficient as possible. They need to make sure they order from the correct distribution centre otherwise it will complicate things and the progress will become slow. Distributing smaller quantities of these goods in lorries to stores throughout the UK wastes time as they will need to other products this will cost extra money as the lorries will need to go to and from the places. They would rather get lots of their products they need in one lorry as this saves them money and lorries do not to come to Tesco and go back to their distribution centres.
