The research topic “AN EVALUATION OF DISTRIBUTION STRATEGIES IN THE MARKETING OF PETROLEUM PRODUCTS” (A CASE STUDY OF NNPC, ABA DEPOT) was chosen because of the constant scarcity of petroleum products that the Nigerian public has been witnessing for some years.
The research looked at the relationship between the distribution and the relationship between the distribution strategies and the availability of petroleum products for public use and to find out if there were other factors other than poor distribution strategies responsible for these scare products.
In sampling of the opinion of the NNPC staff and customers (marketers), the questionnaire and interview methods were used, while their responses were analyzed and used to test the hypothesis using the chi-square method. The result revealed that there were other factors such as overhead costs of distributing the petroleum products, vandalization, and corrupt practices by some members of the distribution chain etc. responsible for the ineffectiveness of the distribution strategies.
At the conclusion of the research, it was suggested that these factors mentioned above be either eliminated or reduced and stringent measures be adopted to act as deterrents to other corrupt practices in the distribution chain.
