Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America’s leading retailers.
Target Global Supply Chain and Logistics is evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how we get the right product to the right guest even better, faster and more cost effectively than before. We are becoming more intelligent, automated and algorithmic in our decision-making, so that no matter how guests shop—in stores or on Target.com—we deliver the convenience and immediate gratification they demand and deserve. We are on a mission to win decisively over any competitor, with a seamless and superior guest service experience unlike any they can offer. Our teams work with the agility our mission requires, and we constantly come together to implement new processes in record time. So we’re looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, commits to a plan and then positively influences others to execute it? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.
A role in Global Logistics, Inventory Allocation and Replenishment means you’ll focus on the efficient transportation of product around the world. Here, you’ll be challenged to pivot seamlessly from sales operations and planning, to ensuring compliance with U.S. Customs regulations, to achieving the best possible product availability through proper inventory positioning. You’ll establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time shipment and delivery to stores and ultimately, guests. And you’ll analyze transportation supplier capabilities and contracts for maximum speed, reliability and cost effectiveness.
As a Market Logistics Leader, you’re responsible for transportation operations within a specific region in the United States, engaging with up to 12 different third party providers to drive consistent outbound to store delivery performance. You’ll identify opportunities for efficiency and lead a strong safety culture by addressing safety trends through process improvement and ensuring clear expectations are set and met. You’ll oversee multiple DC facilities servicing between 200-300 stores and delivering approximately 50,000 loads outbound to Target’s store network. You’ll collaborate with Group Operations Directors, Carrier Partners and Headquarters and Field leaders to ensure a high level of service, maximize efficiency and serve as a change agent to champion continuous improvement and do what is best for the guest.
