Subject: Upcoming velocity
Post date: Feb 13, 2015 3:02:41 AM
I just wanted to let you all know, which most of you can see already, that we have seen significant reductions in velocity over the past couple weeks. Unfortunately, I cannot give you any sort of projection for recovery in the near future. We have a few issues that are driving the drop, namely the labor dispute at the ports, as well as utility changes for some of our domestic shipments.
That being said, I am going to start cutting back on our extra boards across the division tomorrow. I am not looking to make significant cuts, but I will take a little at a time where I can. This may be a good thing to share with your members, though I assume they can see it coming too.
I am hopeful that this is a temporary and short term event, as we want to keep everyone working.
