RESEARCH BODY

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the Study

Guinness Nigeria (plc) bottling company in Nigeria is one of the largest independent manufacturer and distribution of the well known and widely consumed brands of beers and soft drinks in Nigeria. their brands include; Guinness extra stout, Extra smooth, Harps, Guinness Malta, Snapp, Malta Guinness, Low Sugar and Orijin which they produce and market from many manufacturing plants. They also market over 200 distribution centres that we also called depots, spread over the nooks and crane of Nigeria. Their workforce is over in the neighbourhood of 35 employees. the cost associated with a unit of sale increase in Q2.2009 over the corresponding period in Q2.2008. This is reflected in the PBI margin which decreases to 5.62% in the Q2.2009, 6.44% as at Q2. 2008, and down from 6.38% as at the end of the financial year in March 2009. This shows that the companies total cost as a percentage of to stands at 94.38% up marginally from 93.36% recorded in the corresponding period of 2003. PAT margin currently stands at 4.78%, down to 5.26% in the corresponding that the percentage of 90, PBT and PAT in the Q2 2009 ended march to the 2009 show that it performs better both in log line and bottom line in HYI. This can be attributed to the Christian and New Year sales and other ceremonies usually associated with year end. to provide a system that will reduce the overhead in maintaining independent date fills with its associated redundancy and integrity problems.

Guinness Nigeria, a subsidiary of Diageo PLC of the United Kingdom, was incorporated in 1962 with the building of a brewery in Ikeja the heart of Lagos. The brewery was the first outside of Ireland and Great Britain. Other breweries have been opened overtime- Benin City brewery in 1974 and Ogba brewery in 1982. Guinness Nigeria PLCs water of life initiative currently provides portable water over 500,000 Nigerians spread across several rural communities, from Northern to Southern Nigeria. It funds scholarship and also provides Guinness Eye Hospitals in three cities in Nigeria. Before prohibition, a nationwide ban on the sale, production, importation and transportation of alcoholic beverages from 1920 – 1933, Guinness Nigeria comprised hundreds of small brewers that brewed full-flavoured beers. But after prohibition, domestic brewers largely shifted towards producing less flavourful, lighter beers that used lower cost ingredients and could be mass-produced to take advantage of economies of scale. As the industry consolidated, Guinness Nigeria Plc became one of the two major brewers in the United States distribution company and in Nigeria as a whole, making up 90% of all domestic beers production today and making available their entire product in both rural and urban areas. They as well dominated the four corner of the country with their products.

GUINNESS Nigeria products are being consumed about 22% volume because of their vast distribution of their products. This category includes craft (small, independent and traditional) brewers, domestic speciality beers, and most imports. These beers are more expensive but are higher in quality image and taste compare to other beers.

the Guinness Nigeria Plc Bottling company has announced plans to expand the availability of its product to the entire state in the country which they have meet up to the distribution of 85% through it exclusive distribution partners and using different channel to make their product unique and feasible. the Ikeja branch alone has taking over more than i6 states and as many depot as possible to distribute the goods and products of the Guinness Nigeria Plc. as corporation and investors buy up all the craft brewers they can buy, retail outlets are now expanding the space dedicated to selling beers and enhance all the product of the Nigeria Guinness across the globe. the most notable example of this being the Lagos Ikeja depot and the Enugu depot which is one in town of the distribution company for the Guinness Nigeria Plc bottling company which is the largest supermarket chain by revenue announcing that it will be expanding its in-store draft stations, giving thirsty customers more growler-full and tasting choices. the company is expanding its beer program and product circulation to different country in the world so that customers will be able to buy or bring their own 32-ounce or 64-ounce growler to fill with local and natural craft beer brands. the grocery retailers also says it will offer wine at the beer tap stations pint and fight for tastings will also be available for selected brands.

1.2 Statement of the Problems

Guinness Nigeria bottling company produces and market over seven (7) different brands of drinks. These products are sent to the various stores and other branches or depots within the country. The large volume of stocks coupled with the vast distribution networks creates some control and management problem. it creates hours and days to locate any information required due to volume of files involved in dispatching the products. Also, many customer files have been lost due to the lack of memories and the manual handling of customer profiles. Therefore, the problems that the present system is facing are as follows;

  1. Lack of (DBS) to save customer profiles.
  2. Lack of good distribution channels for immediate delivery of goods
  3. Lack of good network system for immediate verification of product delivery and control
  4. Lack of memories to store files of booked product (FULLS and EMPTIES)

.3 Objective of Study

The objective of this project is to design and implement a product distribution control system that will keep track records of product and sales for the Guinness Nigeria bottling company. Below are some of the objectives that the new system I am introducing will do to the development of the company;

  1. To create a database that keep information
  2. To keep track of return products
  3. Keep record of product sold and distribution.
  4. Create a redundant network for easy access of files and folder in order for different branch of the company to communicate and share information on a network should in case there is a slight problem with the existing network.

1.4 Significance of the Study

This research work will help to access and document report from various departments within the company, which will affect immediate decision making. it will also solve the problem of manual handling of important document. The system will help to meet up with customer order and eliminate the problem of broken promises. This system will also ensure adequate distribution of products to all designated depots and keep records of all the returned product of both the FULLS and the EMPTIES.

1.5 Scope of Study

The study is centred on Guinness Nigeria plc bottling company and the way of improving its effectiveness of daily sales and distribution of goods. For these reason, aspect of production control such as scheduling and manufacturing authorization is not covered, including some aspect of dispatch processes. This system handles the material (stock) control but does not go into the purchasing and costing of the raw materials. It provides the necessary report that helps in determining when to make purchase and also what it takes to distribute them to different depots and arms of the company in the whole Nigeria without having any delay or lost of waybills. It also generates the bills of various brands of drinks produced in Guinness Nigeria and how to dispatch and distribute them accordingly. it also monitors and control the activity of various branch or depots to provide efficient services to the esteem customers and the arrival of goods sent from the headquarters, to provide timely information that bears on meeting schedule.

1.6 Limitation of the Study

It is tested and proved, fact that the road to success is smooth. Therefore, the researcher encounters some hindrances; some of which are listed below;

  1. time constraints
  2. Financial Constraints
