Cost analysis was done for every step during transportation process. The factors affecting distribution cost was studied. According to the study, the structure of transportation within the transportation division of Beer Company could be divided into 2 sections: Beer in box and fresh beer. The company calculated cost by using the conventional accounting method but it caused the error. When the activity base costing system was applied, transportation process could be divided into 9 activities. There were 15 cost items during the transportation process. Cost was assigned to different steps using the optimum cost pusher. The activity base costing system could reduce the error of the conventional method.
