Shipper/Yard Manager

Barkman Concrete

My daily responsibilities included supervising two forklift operators, two drivers and an installation assistant as well as two summer students in peak season.  I was responsible for the completion and adherence to the Barkman pre shift  inspection program. I also ensured the yard was stocked for any and all onsite customer request of product.  

I submitted all stock and special order request.  I also received all shipments  into the computer system, to ensure accuracy.  I shipped all site furnishing deliveries.  Completed all customs documentation for all U.S. bound shipments from the Winnipeg location.  

I personally looked after 5 of the companies most northern accounts.  These accounts were handled by  myself due to the cost associated with errors in the shipping prior to my taking them over. I created a position  and hired  the individual to ensure all loads were checked a final time before being delivered or picked up by the customer.
