Hayley Bernard Takes the Initiative to Enhance Logistics at Nichiha

Congratulations to the Golden Hard Hat Winner for October, Hayley Bernard!

Our most recent Golden Hard Hat winner, Hayley Bernard, Warehouse Associate, is a member of the Logistics department based in Macon. David Girard, her manager, describes Hayley’s overachievement like this: “She is the residential shipment scheduler and she purchases Tamlyn for the company.  Over the last few months, credit concerns and stock availability have made her scheduling job very dynamic, sometimes scheduling trucks to pick up the same day as the orders are released, changing carriers on short notice, and closely monitoring order status, regularly working with production and accounting teams to ship as soon as possible.  She also works with carriers to ensure that we are using the best option to deliver our product, which is more art than science,  taking prices, truck availability, and carrier performance into consideration.  If not for her efforts, our shipping performance would not be as strong as our results show.”

Thank you Hayley and congratulations!
