We’re Getting Close!

The piles in the warehouse are getting smaller and we are down to one container left to load (tomorrow, Monday Feb 25 at 6:30 PM)! It is an activity that is often overlooked and underappreciated but it is as important as the delivery in Belarus. If we don’t get it loaded in Canada, it does not get delivered in Belarus and the accuracy of the inventory is critical to enable the delivery to happen at all! Loading involves more than just lugging! We have had people sorting, palletizing, inventorying, wrapping, labelling, cleaning up and many more jobs than even I am aware of!

Here are some shots from today’s important work:

Ed and Murray have been there everyday driving the fork trucks for us. Here is Ed hard at it:

And for all you guys who spent your day INSIDE the containers here is what they look like on the outside just waiting to go!

The Cans ready to go!

One left to go … hope to see you tomorrow night!
