Today’s warehouse attendance was higher than any single day during the last couple of weeks. While we are still operating at a fraction of normal labor levels, our ongoing efforts to attract new and known associates show promise. Monday’s team focused on aging and on building work in progress (WIP) that will serve as a foundation for success this week.
As we don’t expect daily volatility in the short term, this will be the last end-of-day email update for now. Moving forward, similar emails will be reserved to convey major operational changes or important news. For day-to-day information, updates about the shipping plan, order prioritization, or other areas of inquiry, please continue to work directly with your Program Manager.
While we’re still very much operating in uncertain times, we appreciate the professionalism that you have brought to this partnership as we face daily challenges and work to resolve them with all of the resources currently available to us.
