Start Consolidating dispatch centers

Consolidating dispatch centers

Since my division was so small, there was always a ton of work to be done, and I was more than happy to help alleviate that.

For example, on Mondays I sat in on a market call with the protein team to discuss any significant changes in the market for live cattle, beef cuts, live hogs, pork cuts, and seafood.

Throughout the week, I sent the buyer the daily market close on certain pork cuts so that he could determine what prices he wanted to set for our products, what product to stock up on, and what products to set good deals on.

My position this summer was the Protein Customer Development Intern in the Sales Department of Dot Foods.

The goal of this study is to identify dispatching policies for the vehicle with the sole purpose of minimizing unsatisfied demand at the POD.

Protein is relatively new and presents a new avenue for the company that I hope to see grow in the future.

I reported to both the buyer and the sales team so I learned all avenues of the business.

Since I was a young kid in grade school, I would always embark on adventures with friends and family to the little town of Mt. I was fascinated with the sea of blue trucks and the monstrosity that is the corporate headquarters of Dot Foods, Inc.
