In July 2023 I worked briefly as a pick pack associate with large warehouse in Stapylton, Gold Coast, Queensland. I used voice picking headset on transporters to pick pallets for trucks to deliver to stores. This gave me some experience for my MIT MicroMasters in Supply Chain Management and Cert III Supply Chain Operations (Warehouse).
This is a very big warehouse to get around and operate in. It was too dangerous for me as liquor boxes are like cement to lift as very dense and easy to injure onself or break. Most of the job was labouring under very tight schedules with on the job training for operating the transporter and headset and loading and packing heavy boxes - muscles not brains.
There is quite a bit of computers, mobile devices and networking in the warehouse so my IT background slightly came in handy for understanding of supply chain but no optimisation as that was done by bosses.
Agribusiness supply chain includes warehousing, transport, robotic pickers and drones and logistics mashups.
From October 2019 using Containers for Change site, I am collecting cans and bottles, scanning barcodes to check if refundable using barcode reader software ZBar and Webcam on Windows 10 desktop and taking them to depot in Caboolture Queensland Australia to get refund for cans and bottles. This shows supplier selection and quality control to increase ROI.
Currently in January 2022, I am working on using supply chain management in publishing several books of my late father.
With large changes in supply chain worldwide since January 2020 onwards, supply chain knowledge which I have through my MIT Edx supply chain course and Cert III Supply Chain Operations (Warehouse) are very topical in economic downturn and recovery.
From December 2021, I am studying online Cert III Supply Chain Operations (Warehouse) via Alffie.
From 2015-2019, I took 4 years online to do MicroMasters in Supply Chain Management with MIT via edx.org. This involved 5 subjects and a comprehensive final exam I passed well in March 2020.
In 2017, Dwight Walker was trained as a forklift operator which can be used in farms, factories, processing plants or recycling centres for loading, unloading and moving pallets in a warehouse or moving large objects on and off trucks or vehicles in a yard.
