Get to Know Our Shipping & Receiving Department!
The Shipping & Receiving Department at Dadee Manufacturing has a very important job—safeguarding our incoming and outgoing products, and every component that goes into designing and building our units. As a team, everyone in the department maintains a constant knowledge of where items are in the shipping and receiving process; however, with something as dynamic as shipping and receiving, it’s important to continuously look for ways to improve quality control as well. That’s one of the department’s goals in 2018 and always.
What’s Shipping & What’s Receiving?
So, what’s being shipped and what’s being received at Dadee Manufacturing, you ask? Receiving includes all vendor deliveries for both regular parts and refurbished parts, raw materials, and items being sent to and returning from powder coat, as well as any other associated items involved in the manufacture, service, maintenance of Dadee products. Shipping includes all parts sales shipments, warranty shipments, and powder coat items sent offsite.
By funneling all incoming and outgoing items through one point of entry and exit, the Shipping & Receiving Department can maintain more control and visibility. There are designated areas for all outgoing shipments, and part of the Dadee process requires that all incoming shipments be handled within an eight-hour business day. This means the shipments are verified, received, and put away in their correct locations within this timeframe.
Meet the Team
Our Shipping & Receiving Department is comprised of four hardworking individuals. Sam Sandoval, who’s been with Dadee Manufacturing for over a year, handles data entry, making sure our incoming shipment counts and locations are accurately entered into our system. Her knowledge of the Dadee operating system is a tremendous help to the department. Tommy Jackmon and Henry Montoya are material handlers. Their responsibilities include loading and unloading shipments, verifying the counts and part numbers of incoming shipments, making sure all parts are put away in their proper locations, and keeping the Weld Department stocked with materials they need.
The department is led by Michael McElwain, our shipping and receiving manager. He started in the Parts Department before being promoted to Dadee’s management team. He has embraced the opportunity to take the reigns in Shipping & Receiving, and provide a single point of accountability for all the items arriving and leaving our facility.
