How To Become Bigi Drinks Distributor in Nigeria

To become a Bigi drink distributor in Nigeria, one has to be result-oriented and purpose-driven. Below are some of the highlighted procedures to becoming a distributor of bigi drinks in Nigeria.

To become a Bigi drink distributor, one has to have a depot where you sell wholesale to retailers like restaurants, hotels, corporate events and of course to shop owners who will retail the drinks.

The supply of drinks usually comes;

  •  Directly from the bottling companies;
  • From the main depots of the coca-cola company;
  • The truck drivers often work for major depots so the supply is directly from the coca-cola depot. Their numbers are found pasted at the back of their trucks.

Moreover, when running a depot one has to look after all operational aspects of the business, the supply, the delivery, the sale and ultimately the distribution of the drinks.

As expected, the supply to depots are usually from larger more established Bigi depots or directly from the bottling company.

You could offer delivery services where you don’t have to worry, you only need to contact them for the first time and then they would be coming to your doorstep to deliver the drinks, though there might be delivery costs. Alternatively, one could have his own transport to collect the drinks whenever one needs to.

Another crucial thing one must note is that when buying the drinks for the first time you have to pay for the bottles and crates of which after, you only pay for the liquid drink and provide the crates with bottles inside.

Other factors include:

Business Registration

Being registered as a company with the CAC is a crucial requirement to obtain the status of a Bigi drinks distributor/depot, where your supply will be coming directly from the bottling companies with the familiar long red-painted trucks offloading in front of the depot.

The Space of the Depot

You need a very big space preferably one that is specifically built for the purpose of storage of the drinks. It should have a parking area that could accommodate at least one long truck or two small ones and enough space in front of the storage facility/store for the movement of workers when hauling crates to and fro.

The minimum space requirement for the store is 104 meters cube in volume, which is about a 16 meters long and 3 meters wide building excluding the front space and parking area. Just enough to collect the contents of one long coca-cola truck.
