At peak times during the year warehouse managers, trucking firm owners, and those responsible for logistics and operations look to economize by decreasing their overhead costs. It is easy to look at the freight unloading link in any supply chain and incorrectly think that this is an obvious place to start to save a few dollars. It isn’t. Summertime brings an abundance of seasonal labor for hire, particularly college students looking for the ideal job between semesters. To them, loading and unloading trucks and containers all day seems a great way to bypass the expense of a gym membership to stay fit. To those who hire inexperienced summer labor, the truth is, they will likely end up spending more long term. Here are the best reasons to consider hiring professional lumper services, and only professionals, like Express Freight Handlers, to unload freight at your loading docks:
