Freight Unloaders – Lumping Service

Boxes to be sorted and organized onto pallets – lumping service

lumper is a subset of Warehouse Labor Services. Knick-named “lumper” the worker is often a third-party laborer who works unloading cargo goods from shipping containers. Because goods are often floor stacked to maximize cube, each box must be identified by SKU, sorted, and placed on a pallet. Lumpers are used primarily for food or grocery goods, but occasionally in other areas of trucking as well.

A lumper fee is charged to the carrier when a company uses third-party workers to help unload the container contents. Lumpers are often used at food warehousing companies and grocery distributors. These fees are often reimbursable to the driver by the shipper or the freight broker.

Lean Inc., through a partnership with CDS provides third-party freight unloading services. For freight unloading prices click here. Lumper pricing is based on the number of SKUs needed to be sorted and the number of cases per shipping container.

On-Site Pallet Repair Service

On-site pallet repair service makes good sense when a company plans to reuse pallets over a long period of time, maintain them, and get the full life out of a pallet. The alternative is to constantly buy pallet repaired by others.

Pallets are durable, reusable warehouse essentials that deserve some care and attention. Lean Inc. in partnership with CDS provides on-site pallet repair service so that your company can focus on the important business at hand.

Also available is our pallet rack repair service. Instead of replacing pallet rack, we repair the damaged rack to a stronger and more durable condition than before the racking was damaged.
