A key piece in a warehouse’s operations is its physical labour force. Lumpers, also sometimes referred to as “swampers”, are the backbone of any productive warehouse or facility, helping to reduce driver fatigue and injury risks for the carriers, reducing loading time and improving relations with customers for the shippers, increasing the speed at which inbound freight can be received, and allowing drivers to quickly go from one appointment to the next without delay. Third-party lumping services have been used by numerous large-scale carriers to increase productivity in almost every department.
Group NB is the only recruitment company
servicing every corner of Canada and the United States. We have dedicated and experienced
workforces able to meet any carrier’s needs and our offices are easily able to service major
cities as well as smaller towns.
Many competitors get a bad reputation due to their lack of management or disorganization. At Group NB, we pride ourselves on our skilled labour force, many who have been with us for years. Unlike the dozens of local temp services available, we don’t just send you anybody who walks into our office off the street; we utilize only the best workers, hiring long-term full-time and part-time workers through our thorough interview process, specialized specifically in lumping, giving you the most bang for your buck.
For long-term contracts, we have a team lead or supervisor on site throughout the day to ensure the team’s productivity stays at its maximum. We maintain regular contact with our leads at every site, making sure to stay on top of any given task, no matter how large or small it may be.
The simplest and most commonly used option, hourly rates can be beneficial for companies looking for a standardized invoice.
Piece count rates are generated for every piece a lumper touches. This option usually helps to encourage stronger productivity in staff, since they can earn in 7 hours as much as they would for an 8-hour shift, if they work hard and finish early!
Our staff can also load or unload your trailers for you! Doing so can speed up work in general, bring a better understanding of the load that an employee is working on, and leave more time for your staff to complete any other duty they may have.
And finally, we offer a flat rate per trailer or half-trailer for days or sites with a smaller inbound volume. These rates vary depending on the load’s size.
