No crews should ever “start” their day at the warehouse. If a foreman keeps the truck at the warehouse it is there for storage only. The day should never start there. The foreman should communication with the CM and PM what parts they need and that will be relayed to the WM the afternoon prior. The parts will be ordered/pulled, boxed and the WM or CM can put it in their truck the next morning or at a pre-planned meeting point. This is much more efficient and less expensive than crews starting at warehouse daily. This should always be the goal. CMs should reach out every couple of days to see what is needed on a foreman’s job site.
