Report description

RETAIL REALITIES.

This report examines the methods and avenues of U.S. beverage distribution. It provides an overview of the entire liquid refreshment beverage (LRB) market and discusses the latest distribution-related trends. The report also delves into the individual sales channels, offering statistics and insight on channel volume by beverage type as well as Beverage Marketing's volume and growth projections for each LRB beverage group and analysis of the forces determining each channel's future with respect to LRB's. New for 2013: Includes data for Independent retail establishments.

All commodity volume weighted distribution, more commonly known as ACV, is the most common form of measuring the success of distribution.

  • It is a measure used by SymphonyIRI Group (SIG), as well as Nielsen, to measure the percentage of stores within a given time frame that carry a particular product.
  • Typically, ACV is weighted based on the total sales volume of individual stores.
  • While ACV is not a perfect tool, it serves as a guide to determine how widespread distribution is of a particular product.
  • ACV does have some shortcomings. For example, it does not measure how widespread distribution is in unaudited channels. Furthermore, product volume is increasingly migrating to these unmeasured channels, of which there are many.
  • Another drawback is that a product sale must occur before a product is considered distributed in a particular outlet. For example, a brand could conceivably have 100% actual consumer availability but would have 0% ACV if no sales have been scanned.
  • Despite these drawbacks, ACV remains the most cost-effective measure of beverage distribution.

Direct-store delivery (DSD) distribution - which is used primarily by soft drink bottlers and beer wholesalers - is universally considered to be the best distribution method.

  • DSD is comprehensive in that it has the capability to service all retail channel types. In particular, it is particularly effective at servicing smaller outlets that can be overlooked in other distribution methods.
  • DSD is effective at properly merchandising products. It serves to reduce out-of-stocks, manage point-of-sale materials for promotions, and rotate product to reduce out-of-date products.
  • It is, however, the most labor-intensive of the distribution options and, thus, it is also the most expensive.
