The Feed Ingredients Department had serious capacity issues due to a decrease in delivery drivers. Customer deliveries were being adversely impacted, which put a strain on the department. Upon hearing these issues, I asked Marty at Stutsman Logistics if his team could look through their capacity partners for a good fit to sign on as a feed route owner-operator. Marty delegated to his team and Teresa worked diligently through her contacts to source help. She successfully found an owner-operator that was willing to sign on who also had past work experience as a feed route delivery driver with another company. As of writing this nomination, this owner-operator completed his first week, and all are excited to have him on the team. Marty and Teresa valued collaboration by taking a resource that helps SLI generate revenue and relinquished it to help another department with a greater need!
