Q&A with Our Driver Support, Natalie Inkley

What do you do at Beehive meals?

I'm our Driver Support at Beehive Meals! My day-to-day tasks consist of creating routes for each of the locations we deliver to and assisting our drivers when they are out delivering. During deliveries, drivers may need a gate code, help locating an address, or other various assistance. I am their go-to contact to resolve any issues.

What does the delivery route creation process look like?

To create the routes for a designated delivery day, I filter our open orders to add stops for a specific date. I track what inventory is needed to load onto the vans and verify each of our customers' shipping addresses by confirming our routing system has each stop pinned correctly for delivery. Once the routes have been made, I assign and dispatch one route to each of our drivers. By the morning of the delivery, routes are completely optimized and arranged in the most efficient way possible to ensure deliveries flow smoothly.

When you find yourself in the driver’s seat, what do you like to listen to? 

I prefer to listen to music, but as a full-time student and employee, I sometimes find myself needing more time in the day to accomplish everything! I often listen to recorded lectures in the car.

How did you hear about Beehive Meals?

I heard about Beehive Meals through my brother-in-law, who is the Distribution General Manager. I started working here as a production team member when I was in high school, then left the company when I graduated to start college in Salt Lake City. Now, I’ve found myself back here as the Driver Support just a few years later.
