    It's going to be about their shift towards more .com sales. The wad a huge week-long exec meeting in Minnesota last week. Inbound is going to start ramping down their consolidated loads and become more dock oriented like it used to be. I've even heard that within a year or two ART could be done or just 1 line.

    From what I recall its like grading on a curve. Which I understood (and have started to see it played out) if you're below the average (speed/quality ratio), you seek other opportunities outside the company.

    One way or another we are on a very quick train to Target doing something about cost it can control. Be it improvements to processes, pay cuts, temps, schedule changes, I would also expect some big changes to management as well, I haven't seen management (GM and down) this stressed out since I started.

    Good time to keep your options open IMO.

    Weird since they are spending a fortune updating art lines

    Agreed. They are currently updating two buildings I believe. And I agree with trowa03, haven't seen this type of stress from management in a while.

    So... fewer hours for flow team, backroom, and overall logistics in the coming years, it would seem. That replenishment goal is quite something.

    Will be interesting to see how this pans out.

    Trucks everyday would be interesting especially for slower stores. What would they do, have it a quarter full? I foresee our shifts changing to that of the udc's

    And what are those? Did you ever get an answer?
     
  8. After that ATM, I'm not really gonna read too far into this. Remember a couple years back they said that Roverpick was gonna be the huge game changer? ...And where exactly is that now?

    But to digress, I do find it interesting that they're trying to make the DC's into gigantic backrooms, light duty and all. And on another note, will all RDC's become either flow or reserve centers? Will any 'as-is' RDC's remain? Will personnel or physical building size be downsized? There's a lot of questions here, but I think we're gonna have to wait and see how it all plays out.

    The way it was communicated us, tm's and om's I've talked to, it sounds like the rdcs as we know them will be gone and we will either be flow or reserve. Communication is never done properly so I guess it's just wait and see. And no, never heard what udc shifts are.

    You also need to look at the benefits of all DCs becoming .com fulfillment centers as well.

    They discussed a new style of flowing freight (very few full cases, more single items, but on rolling carts versus repacks). There was a video on inside that showing the process.
