Amazon FC Outbound Performance Measurement

This project aims to increase trailer fill rates and reduce logistics costs as well as environmental impact by implementing performance metrics for associates at the outbound dock. These performance metrics will drive accountability with respect to efficient trailer loading and visibility for fulfillment center leadership. (This 2018 Tauber team project serves as an extension of last year’s Truck Utilization project.)
