That is the reason the policy providing triage’s come up becauseaccording to the contract the shopkeeper has to keep only & onlyPepsi’s products in the visicooler.<br />3.A BOTTLE LOSS TO COKE IS A GAIN TO PEPSI: -The<br />competition is so strong between the two companies i.e. fighting is onfor each bottle that is to be sold in the market. Competitive biddinggoes on for each & every prestigious outlet in their region.Monopolizing entries & fat foods joint s is their first priority.<br />4.EMPTY kA HI KHEL HAI: - [Empty plays an important role]: - As<br />discussed earlier the distribution points keeps on putting up<br />distribution schemes for retailers i.e. like two bottles of solution free.<br />with the purchase of every one carat of solution. Now these schemeshave timed well keeping minding the environmental conditions &schemes provided by the other company. These schemes are oftwenty-four hours duration. If a scheme is launched & there is noempty in the market for refill, the whole effort goes in vain that is thereason is said ki sub empty ka khel hai.<br />DISTRIBUTION STRATEGIES<br />A Company can choose any of the following distribution types: -<br />•Exclusive Distribution<br />•Selective Distribution<br />•Intensive Distribution<br />“PEPSI” HAS ADOPTED THE INTENSIVE DISTRIBUTION<br />STRATEGY.<br />INTENSIVE DISTRIBUTION:<br />A Strategy of intensive distribution is characterized by placing the goodsor services in as many outlets as possible. When the consumer requires agreat deal of location convenience, it is important to offer greaterintensity of Distribution. This strategy is generally used for convenienceitems such as Tobacco, gasoline, and soap, snack foods & bubblegum.<br />Manufactures are constantly tempted to move from exclusive or selectivedistribution to more intensive distribution to increase their coverage andsales and you could find Pepsi in nursing homes, confectionery shops,departmental stores; you name it & Pepsi is available there.<br />DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL REDIFINED<br />Pepsi has redefined distribution to strengthen their competitive advantagein the emerging consumer and market scenario. Their earlier focus was todrive wide availability and enable easy access to their brands forconsumers. Now they seek to go well beyond this distribution paradigm.Their new approach is more holistic touching consumers in multiple waysat the point of purchase and more importantly, creating opportunities forcustomers to receive brand message and experience our brands.<br />They are proactively addressing these emerging trends by approachingdistribution and channels in a much broader way. They are shiftingemphasis from mere reach or availability expansion to touchingconsumers with a 3- way convergence- of product availability, brandcommunication and higher level of brand experience.<br />They are thus going beyond delivering products and creating greater<br />engagement and interaction around the purchasing experience.<br />Pepsi’s reinvention of distribution is built on an understanding ofemerging consumer trends, the retail environment and the growth driversof our brands.<br />Pepsi’s distribution system is a key external resource. Normally it hastaken years to build and cannot be easily changed. It ranks in importancewith key internal resources such as manufacturing, research, engineeringand field sales personals. It represents significant corporate commitmentto set policies and practices that constitute the basic fabric on which iswoven an extensive set of long run relationship.<br />CHANNEL FUNCTION AND FLOWS<br />Marketing channel perform the following functions-<br />•To gather the information about potential and current customers,<br />and competitors.<br />•To reach agreements on Price•To list orders with manufacturers.•They provide the successive storage and movement of physical<br />products.<br />It can be defined as backward and forward integration i.e. starting fromsupplier of the raw material to the end customer.

The information so recorded in each phases of the project had to be listed in orderof their relevance and seriousness and presented in a form to facilitate immediateinference.<br />Some of the important observations have been listed below:<br />Soft drink business’s behavior is not governed by brand loyalty so the availability<br />of the right brand, at the right place, at the right time is the key for winning<br />consumer in soft drink business.<br />The most important and satisfying observation was that, PEPSI had<br />approximately 64% market share in the soft drinks market in Dehradoonandsome of its brands like Mirinda Orange and Mountain Dew were performingabove standards apart from PEPSI Cola in spite of the Coca Cola with two colaflavor packs i.e., Coke and Thumps up.<br />The present distribution system of PEPSI is the best in the entire FMCG industry<br />in Dehradoonand the major strength<br />of PEPSI. The enhancement in the distribution network would definitely increase<br />the market share of PEPSI.<br />The retailers played a very critical role in the increment in the sales volume of the<br />product and the had to be kept satisfied in order to increase the market share byoffering better schemes, discounts, display materials such as VISI’s, racks,counter, signage, wall paintings and better amount for purchase of shelf space fordisplay.<br />The existence of sub-dealers and super stockiest are also the major area of<br />problem, as they do not move the schemes and other display materials and incentives information to the retailers, which is one of the reasons for the<br />dissatisfaction of retailers.<br />The cut throat competition between PEPSI and COKE had lead to the never<br />ending cola war and price war which has brought down the profit margins whichis one of the major grievances apart from the common complains pertaining toschemes, incentives and display materials.<br />The other major issue was the supply of PEPSI from the bottling plants in Delhi<br />and Punjab against the company policies. These plants supplied the products at<br />discounted rates and violated merchandising principles of PEPSI.<br />Another critical issue was the presence of duplicate products of PEPSI in the<br />market. The details of these outlets have been surrendered to the company for<br />action against these outlets.<br />The position of PEPSI in the corporates was not up to the mark and Coca Cola<br />had a better scene in this context. One of the reasons can be assigned to the<br />product positioning of PEPSI and Coca Cola.<br />
