Given Walmart’s large scale, it’s easier to save a lot of money by making small changes that have an impact.
CEO Doug MakMiylan said on Friday at an annual meeting of shareholders in Bentonville, Arkansas, that Walmart would save at least $ 30 million this year with a lighter version to replace the poles at the distribution center.
Workers must use these chairs in tractor trailers filled with goods – up to the roof – McMillan said. The goal is to place as much as possible on the trailer to reduce road performance and reduce costs. But the previous bench version, which provides Walmart workers, was “awkward, high and heavy,” he said. So the pendant isn’t packed because some people don’t use feces. They don’t want to take him around.
Now, after making the foot version lighter, which is much easier to handle, Walmart is doing a “much better” packaging trailer, said Macmillan. It’s good enough to save a company millions of dollars every year.
This is similar to Walmart which says it saves $ 200 million by replacing bulbs in shops and parking lots and saves $ 20 million through new new candles. There he is
Walmart trades with “daily low prices”, which can only be achieved if it maintains its own costs.
