This course is for all employees that work in the yard, dispatch or delivery. It is beneficial to employees in sales, administrative or management positions as well, as it is the cornerstone of successful yard operations.

This program’s agenda includes:

  • Setting the pace using the Operational Excellence Methodology
  • Materials handling
  • Inventory shrinkage
  • Proper receiving best practices
  • Creating the best first impression in yards, warehouses, trucks and ourselves
  • Best practices for high performance delivery service
  • Internal operations
  • In the yard
  • On the job-site
  • Tracking

The workshop will conclude with a walk-through at a host retail location where the classroom academics will be reviewed and we will "open our eyes" and talk about proper responses when we get back home.
