Complex 3PL, frozen food warehouses, customer driven
Pallet Coordinator & Workflow Control (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 5 November 2013
Involved in many areas within the company. Recently in the pallet department our team was productive, energetic department, quick decision making during entry of pallet forms. Rewarding to ensure that expensive pallets were not lost and always having warehouses stocked with pallets, business continued daily. Supervisor was very informative and supportive and assisted when needed. Department was very focused and keen to ensure data entry was accurate. Daily was a struggle to process all pallet forms which could exceed 500 daily. In another position, workflow control, balanced manpower with location needs and controlled all work for the day in system. Was given the opportunity to enroll in Lean Six Sigma, and learned to become more efficient through the use of LSS methodologies. The team on the shift was functional, able to carry out orders and remained busy due to control of work in system. The average case picking per shift was 20K and load onto many trucks, this gave the shift a sense of accomplishment knowing that the customer would receive their product on time. A difficult time during shift, when equipment broke down and orders still needing picking. Reorganizing the manpower to equipment was initialized and took time.
