Position Purpose

The sales volume growth of our Branded Feed products in Texas coupled with the new Unit Train origins and destination has amplified the need to coordinate, track and execute the Unit Train activity. Back in 1991, the feed team partnered with the BNSF to create the most efficient rail system in the U.S.

This system is measured and benchmarked by looking at cost per ton mile, miles per car achieved annually, managed shipments per FTE and it far exceeds all other systems moved by rail. Continuous monitoring and close coordination with the BNSF has been identified as a primary contributor to the efficiency and continued successful growth of the system. Since the first train shipment in August 2001, we have more than doubled the volume shipped from the Midwest to our customers in Texas.

The critical nature of this activity for both the origin plant as well as the destination requires scheduling trains by the hour, not the day. This position is one which will require a high level of influential ability in a complex operations/logistical environment. This work has been primarily handled by one FTE but the fleet size has doubled and the complexity is far more acute for the business.

The daily tasks, which are outlined in the JAQ, are required by the business to be performed 7 days per week and at various times in the day or night requiring the need for a nontraditional work schedule. The high level accountabilities for this position will be to provide daily railcar audits and follow-up on the entire SB fleet, adjust and update the Unit Train model to meet the needs of the business, and communicate on a professional level to BNSF grain desk personnel as well as the appropriate personnel within the SB enterprise. The day-to-day touch points of coordination will involve the local Cargill plant personnel, the planning group, as well as BNSF personnel at a variety of levels.

Principal Accountabilities
25% Daily audit of entire Unit Train Fleet. Ensure cars are in the right location and direction, notify rr's on any single cars off plan and obtain service plans. Plants have to be balanced by track constraints and daily loading. Secure storage track and manage fleet based on seasonal demand. Work with contracted services on repairs. Supply complete logistics support for lining projects and other campaigned repairs. Understand railcar fleet compliance standards. .
20% Update and adjust train model as required. Enter production, train shipments, cars moving between plants, and notify plants and railroads as plan changes. Timing of trains is very critical for both origins and destinations. Keep records of movements and report transit changes per requested schedule.
20% Scheduling and communicating unit train shipment activity with railroads. This is accentuated by the deliberate building of relationships on the local and corporate level. Maintain specific contacts for multiple regions to ensure timely resolution and maintain the efficiency of the system execution. Create, maintain, and solidify relationships across the rail industry as well as the many disciplines within the enterprise. Maintain a thorough understanding of route changes due to season trends and railroad "Maintenance of Way" windows.
20% Building spreadsheets and billing unit trains from multiple remote locations. Extensive understanding of several systems is necessary as well as the detailed physical work that must occur. Understand crews, routing, transit delays and railroad reporting in detail and have a host of sources for problem solving with assorted issues.
10% Work closely on a daily basis with the planning group, both day to day and long term. Share trends that are appearing on the rail or at the plant level. Adjust schedule as operations plans change, weather delays, and inventory needs change.
