COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO. CONSOLIDATED PARTNERS WITH MOTUS AND SAVES MILLIONS OF DOLLARS PER YEAR Largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the United States streamlines operations by outsourcing the design and administration of their auto allowance program Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated (Coke Consolidated) is the largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the United States. Coke Consolidated offers a complete portfolio of carbonated and non-carbonated drinks including some of the most recognized and popular beverage brands in the world. The company operates in eleven states primarily located in the southeast in what has become known as "Coke Country" to many of its loyal consumers. In 2010, Coke Consolidated generated net sales of over US $1.5 billion aer several years of growth through a combination of acquisitions and internal measures. Today Coke Consolidated employs more than 6,000 and serves more than 18 million consumers through food, convenience and on-premise channels on a weekly basis. Coke Consolidated's history of success has depended as much on driving efficient operations as it has on seeking innovative ways to bring value to its customers and consumers. Until 2008, Coke Consolidated owned, serviced and managed a large fleet of trucks and passenger vehicles. "We had several million dollars wrapped up in passenger vehicles and decided we had an opportunity to unleash those dollars elsewhere in the organization while also reducing our auto-liability exposure," said Jody Billiard, Vice President, Chief Accounting Officer and Corporate Controller. It was time for Coke Consolidated to find a partner to whom they could outsource the design and administration of an auto allowance program.
