    The supply planners that manage the inventory and prioritization at the RDCs will work to set inventory targets across all SKUs at each RDC in their remit to help manage customer delivery targets vs.

    the inventory $$ at each site. These planners will review monthly proposals for inventory targets and then make trade off decisions as needed based on RDC physical capacity and customer expectations.

    These planners will also help launch new products as they are introduced to the portfolio

    Finally, the supply planners that coordinate deployment activities will review a region of the US and Canada daily to build truck load shipments between Shell sites (these are broken into South, Northeast and West / Canada).

    These planners will manage the movement of package goods between RDCs as well as bulk goods between LOBPs based on the region they support.

    These planners will also support the Deployment Inbox which is the gateway for Customer Ops to work with the team on product availability problems for customer orders.
