TOPIC 1: Channel Systems The Coca-Cola company has a very large and complex channel distribution system. Take a look at how the company describes its distribution system by clicking on this link: Can you outline the indirect channel system based on the information on the website? You might want to refer to Figure 6.2 or Figure 6.3 in the main text to organize your thoughts. What value does each of the channel members provide to the end customer? What might you suggest they do differently? The indirect channel system based on Figure 6.2 is as follows: Producer : Coca-Cola Distributor: bottling groups under Bottling Investment Group (BIG) Retailer: grocery stores, restaurants, amusement parks, etc. Consumer : customer consuming 1.9 billion servings a day The values that each of the channel members provide to the end customer are: Distributor: manufacture, package, merchandise and distribute final branded beverages to costumers and vending partners/retailers who then deliver and sell product to consumers (Coca-Cola, 2018).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
