It's time for a member spotlight and this week we have...
This past summer, David was able to work as a Supply Chain intern at Unilever. He says,
""From working alongside different managers within the Supply Chain department I was able to understand
the strategies and networks involved in managing one of the best supply chains in the world.
I was given the opportunity to visit multiple warehouses and be involved in numerous planning team meetings
whereby I learned how different stakeholders within the ecosystem interacted and ways to adapt to changes in sales,
inventory, and production in an efficient manner.
It was truly amazing to be a part of a purpose-driven community that fostered development both internally
and in society through its strong efforts in building highly sustainable and impactful brands.
My favorite project I worked on was building a new logistics cost tracker and network map.
This involved sourcing data from each distributor and creating an excel template and dashboard.
This showcased changes in costs and volume week on week, segmented by distributor and region.
Ultimately this allowed for various logistics costs to be traced more accurately (and for new rates to be updated easily.)"
Way to go, David!
