Spotbound and Down
- Jul 6, 2019
A few stores in my district have lowkey been trying to do this since the spring but the DTL keeps banging the "EVERYONE MUST HAVE A DESIGNATED AREA" drum and trying to snuff it out. Right now we're sending truck team home before or at 10 and most of the uboats just sit there all day with no one to work them.Not sure if other stores have started this new process yet, but its working wonders now. Sort team is now 5-6 people who work 6-1:30pm and unload truck, and then push as much freight as they can until they leave. Weve been doing it for about 2 weeks now, and were getting to where theyre doing atleast 75% of the GM truck, although my store is a big grocery store. We call it the "Swat Team", although its basically a mini flow team. Its given the DBOs more time to actually get workload, brand, fill done now. Today my Chem/Pet/Paper guy didnt have to push a single thing off the truck and was able to get his revisions caught up. Tomorrow we start draining the back room with 1 to 1 pulls. It sounds like they may be rolling this out to everyone soon.
If this becomes real, it would make my dreams come true. 6-1:30 guaranteed every truck would be 😍 😍 😍
