Corporate America relies on efficiencies to drive its profits. While Walmart has its critics, it is ubiquitously seen as a master of efficiency. Walmart’s focus on efficient business practices are even reflected in its merchandise shipping procedures. By using 27 different boxes, as compared to the 12 it has historically used, the company has been able to decrease the total volume of boxes it ships by one-third. Needless to say, with a company the size of Walmart, this has resulted in tremendous cost savings.
With this in mind, MVCC is looking for ways to improve efficiency in all areas of the institution to make it easier for us to move successfully into the future. Do you have ideas or suggestions? Please share them in the comments below.
