April 30, 2017 – The last weekend in April marked yet another milestone for the CONA Services team and its bottling partners: Swire USA Inc., Coca-Cola Bottling Company UNITED (CCBCU) and Great Lakes Coca-Cola Distribution (GLCCD) have transitioned all their sales/distribution territories from Coca-Cola Refreshments (CCR) with only production plants left to transition to them. This was also the weekend where the Atlanta Market Unit territory successfully transitioned to CCBCU. An exciting moment for all Atlanta based Coca-Cola System based associates and certainly also the CONA Services team as now delivery and sales processes can be seen all around the city proudly powered by CONA.
With no less effort but equal success Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) transitioned Toledo, Elyria, Akron, Willoughby and Youngstown, Ohio sales and distribution facilities as well at the Twinsburg production center in this April go-live.
Once again, congratulations to our bottling partners and the CONA Services team for continuing to deliver on a program of this magnitude. With speed and precision the teams have already moved on to prepare for July and August go lives in this historic year of transition for the Coca-Cola System and Company.
