Due to its strategic location in America’s heartland, Indiana serves regional, national and international markets. In 2022, the state’s top exports were pharmaceutical products ($7.33 billion), automotive transmissions ($1.78 billion), trailers for housing or camping purposes ($1.68 billion), and aircraft parts ($1.46 billion). Perhaps the state is best known for its rich farmland which in 2021 exported soybeans ($2.6 billion), corn ($1.3 billion), feed and grain ($717 million) soybean meal ($457 million) and pork ($454 million). These products were transported to and from locations around the state. In 2020, Indiana’s freight imports totaled $63, 965,180,603 making the state the 12th largest freight receiver in the nation.
Logistics and warehouse managers in Indiana have the challenging job of ensuring that every link in their respective supply chains operates smoothly, efficiently, and quickly. However, a recent paradigm shift in consumer spending has impacted the supply chain timeline. For many products, supply chains have entered the era of two- and even one-day fulfillment, forcing logistics overseers to find a workable solution without sacrificing their employees’ safety. The best way that logistics and operations managers can meet the growing demand for increased supply chain efficiency is by hiring on-demand freight unloading services in Indiana from Labor Loop. We provide experienced ‘by-the-job’ staffers to increase the efficiency of your supply chain as well as to reduce your overhead costs, all without sacrificing worker safety.
Consumer demand for faster shipping fulfillment means that trailer and container unloading in Indiana is not a task for inexperienced workers. With Labor Loop’s on-demand unloading services, it is possible for Logistics Managers to both maintain tight schedules and hold the line on labor costs. Contact Labor Loop to discuss a cost-effective, highly efficient means to achieve these important goals. Our on-demand teams are deployed on short-notice when and where they are needed. These on-demand lumper teams work quickly and efficiently to maintain both your schedule and everyone’s safety. Then, when their work has been inspected and approved, our team departs. This also reduces overhead and the need to find 40 hours of tasks for a full-time freight unloading staffer, as well as to subsidize benefit costs.
Damages can occur in transit that are caused by shifted freight. At our Indiana-based job sites, when our team discovers damaged freight due to load shift, we swiftly record and document the damage for an insurance claim while remaining on or close to schedule. In addition, our teams know how to shore-up improperly loaded freight so that it can be removed without further asset losses. Labor Loop’s teams are also fully experienced with all the tools and equipment that the task of freight unloading requires.
