State of the art logistics

State of the art logistics and distribution!? Almost!I work at one of their stores and I can tell you that the distribution system is broken. We keep running out of core products and because of this ,our contractors are walking. I hope that he can make changes before it is too late.Look at the stock price compared to Home Depot and the drop in sales at most stores and I think you will see that there are big problems.
