The warehouse is an essential component to the overall success of Lakeland Engineering Equipment Company. One of the key faces behind the shipping and receiving, managing relationships with courier vendors, and day-to-day operations is Nina Ford. Nina works closely with the warehouse team to ensure customer orders are fulfilled correctly and shipped on-time.
Throughout Nina’s nearly three years with Lakeland, she has made a great impact on the efficiency of the warehouse. “Attention to detail and accuracy are very important within my role,” said Nina. On a daily basis, Nina receives components from Lakeland’s suppliers, stocks them in the appropriate areas of the warehouse, works with purchasing to ensure they’re within our system correctly, fulfills and ships orders and more.
“Currently, I’m working on inventory prep,” she said. “This includes labeling and entering the components into the system and organizing them so our process is efficient.” Nina interacts in a friendly and positive manor with courier vendors each day. When customers request will-call orders and stop into the warehouse to receive them, her positive, professional and down-to-earth energy is noticed.
