We normally organize, label and fly everything up in the steel. Then POG pulls it down at their convenience. As far as backstocking, I wish Target would improve the overall POG system. We get asked to pull Planos all the time, we do it then backstock 80% of it, filling up all our open locations and wasting everyones time. How hard could it be to improve the system? Our autofills are pretty much dead on, why not POG? I highly doubt those 30 plate sets you just pulled are going to go.
Also, shelf capacities are not always correct so that causes the system to pull deeper than it needs to as well.
You got that right! POG recently reset Plug and as you know most Plug locations hold 2/3 of the item, due to box size. That was a FUN backstocking experience.
very odd, we usually have very little backstock. the only area that's been a major pain is the checklanes. and if you drop a "ad items" fill instead of new pog fill, then just shoot a batch for your missing items, it saves all the hours of pulling/bs whats already out, and clears twt fill report. bp or not, it gets the job done, isn't traceable on reporting, and as long as you make sure its full, should be fine.
