About us:

Working at Target means helping all families discover the joy of everyday life. We bring that vision to life through our values and culture. Learn more about Target here.

At Target, food is life. So it's the mission of our integrated Food & Beverage Organization to help our guests more easily discover the joy of food. We thrive on giving families new favorite ways to eat well and cook less, simply and affordably. With curated in-store experiences and a streamlined assortment designed to inspire and save time, we understand the importance of food to our guests' everyday life-from snack duty at soccer practice to important family gatherings and holidays. Join our centralized Food & Beverage team where you'll partner with people from literally every area of the business. Here, you'll help dream up new ways to offer our guests a reliably wonderful experience with the freshness, selection and value they expect and deserve from Target.

A role in Target's Food Supply Chain is a chance to truly serve our guests with speed, freshness and quality. We strengthen the efficiency of product delivery and partner across Target's Global Supply Chain to provide the highest quality food products to our guests - on time, every time. Here, your role might be extracting business insights from data, solving problem statements, conducting gap analysis, and recommending focus areas for leadership. Or you'll be an inventory management resource whose specialized point of view informs what we buy, from whom, how much and where it needs to go from there. You'll leverage inventory positioning to achieve the best possible product availability and establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time delivery. Or join our team in a food distribution center where you're on the very front lines of getting product to the guest as fast as possible-a critical differentiator that keeps Target guests coming back for more.

As a Sr Logistics Analyst you'll focus on the efficient and reliable transportation of product from vendors into Target's food distribution network. You'll establish and develop great relationships with external carrier partners and across the supply chain. Here, you'll be challenged to pivot from weekly performance management to working on continuous improvement projects to achieve the transformative goals we have in front of us. You will have the opportunity to shape our carrier network and develop sourcing expertise by partnering on strategy creation and implementation, contract management and negotiations to maximize reliability and efficiency.

  • Use data to proactively identify defects, establish root cause and implement process improvements
  • Identify and develop Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that accurately reflect network operations and improve reliability
  • Drive end-to-end cost and contract management while leading sourcing efforts to vet, onboard, negotiate and award business to external carrier partners.

About You :

This position may be considered for a Remote or Hybrid (known internally at Target as "Flex for Your Day") work arrangement based on Target's needs. A Remote work arrangement means the team member works full-time from home or an alternate location that's not a Target location, does not have a desk at a Target location and may travel to HQ up to 4 times a year. A Hybrid/Flex for Your Day work arrangement means the team member's core role may be performed either remote or onsite at a Target location depending upon what your role, team and tasks require for that day. Work duties cannot be performed outside of the country of the primary work location, unless otherwise prescribed by Target.
