Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America’s leading retailers.
Target Global Supply Chain and Logistics is evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how we get the right product to the right guest even better, faster and more cost effectively than before. We are becoming more intelligent, automated and algorithmic in our decision-making, so that no matter how guests shop—in stores or on Target.com—we deliver the convenience and immediate gratification they demand and deserve. We are on a mission to win decisively over any competitor, with a seamless and superior guest service experience unlike any they can offer. Our teams work with the agility our mission requires, and we constantly come together to implement new processes in record time. So we’re looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, commits to a plan and then positively influences others to execute it? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.
A role in Global Logistics, Inventory Allocation and Replenishment means you’ll focus on the efficient transportation of product around the world. Here, you’ll be challenged to pivot seamlessly from sales operations and planning, to ensuring compliance with U.S. Customs regulations, to achieving the best possible product availability through proper inventory positioning. You’ll establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time shipment and delivery to stores and ultimately, guests. And you’ll analyze transportation supplier capabilities and contracts for maximum speed, reliability and cost effectiveness.
As a Transportation Yard Coordinator, you are responsible for the execution of daily trailer movement within Target’s Distribution Center Yards. You will foster a “safety first” culture through awareness, training and accountability. With safety being Target’s number one priority, you will work diligently with carriers to ensure they are following all safety expectations and maintaining a safe work environment for all drivers that enter Target’s yard, identifying any unsafe acts and working to immediately address. You will work to ensure the yard management system is updated to reflect the current status of all trailers in the yard. You will also ensure all trailers are admitted according to the current best practices. You will be expected to communicate effectively with all DC executives regarding trailer needs, movement and progress. You will monitor trailer releases to ensure trailers meet scheduled deliveries to stores and be responsible for the accountability of all Target equipment. This includes conducting trailer inventories and ensuring that the equipment is available for preventive maintenance checks. Furthermore, you will work cross functionally with First Mile Transportation to monitor trailer pools and freight flow volatility, ensuring our yards remain within threshold and safe.
