What does Lumping mean?

In the transportation industry, lumping is unloading/loading shipping containers or trailers by manual labour. Mostly used by businesses receiving freight on a regular basis from overseas.

The process of lumping is crucial to ensuring the timely and safe delivery of goods. It requires a skilled and efficient team of workers who are able to handle different types of cargo, including fragile items. The lumping process involves a series of steps, including the unloading of shipping containers or trailers, the unpacking and sorting of items, and the loading of the items onto trucks or other transport vehicles. The use of lumping has several advantages for businesses. Firstly, it allows for the efficient handling of cargo, reducing the time required for unloading and loading. This can help to minimize delays and ensure that goods are delivered on time. Secondly, lumping enables businesses to inspect the items upon arrival, ensuring that they are in good condition and meet the required specifications. This can help to prevent any potential issues or disputes with suppliers, ensuring that businesses are able to maintain good relationships with their partners. Overall, the use of lumping is a valuable technique for businesses in the transportation industry, helping to ensure the smooth delivery of goods and the satisfaction of their customers.

As a business, you can reduce employment costs and risk of accidents, improve productivity and efficiency. We work quickly, in a safe and professional way. Your staff can focus on more important and meaningful work beside hard, repetitive labor.

Unloading/loading containers and trailers

The process of transferring goods from one location to another involves the unloading and loading of containers and trailers. This crucial task requires precision and efficiency in order to ensure that products are delivered on time and in good condition. Through careful coordination and attention to detail, the transfer of these goods is made possible, allowing for the smooth flow of commerce and trade.

Sort according to SKU and pack on pallets according to your pattern

Sorting and packing products efficiently is an essential process for any business that handles large quantities of goods. One effective way to streamline this process is by sorting items according to their SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) and packing them on pallets according to a specific pattern. This method not only saves time but also minimizes errors and reduces the risk of damage to the products during transportation.

Count inventory and shrink wrap your pallets

Counting inventory and shrink wrapping your pallets are essential tasks in any warehouse or distribution center. These activities help ensure that your products are organized, protected, and accounted for, which can save you time, money, and headaches in the long run.

Dock level or ground level

When it comes to loading and unloading shipments, businesses have two main options: dock level or ground level. A dock level loading area is a raised platform that allows trucks to back up and unload at the same height as the loading dock. This eliminates the need for ramps and provides a smooth transition for loading and unloading. Dock level loading areas are typically found in warehouses and industrial facilities that receive frequent shipments.
