Trailer loading efficiency as well as routing optimization
Wal-Mart's logistics team cut cost per case shipped year over year for the eighth quarter in a row.
Trailer loading efficiency as well as routing optimization increased cases transported by mile driven 3.7 percent in the second quarter from a year ago
How did they achieve that efficiency? Not through smarter operations. They achieved it by taking away the profit sharing and insurance and kept the low pay of those doing the routing and loading. I do not call that efficiency I call that mistreating your workers so the executive suite can get a bigger bonus. The workers are sick of getting the short stick that they already have getting taken away from them. That's why the workers are starting to rise in protest even in the face of company threats. They have had enough. Its going to all boil over one day and it is going to be ugly.
