Logistics managers have the thankless job of ensuring that every link in their respective supply chains operates smoothly, efficiently, and swiftly. 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 an equitable solution without sacrificing worker safety. This is especially important in the handling, loading, and unloading of imported and exported goods from the state. In 2022 alone, Maine exported $3.42 billion in goods, chiefly aircraft parts, electronics, and, no surprise, live, fresh, or chilled lobsters! Logistics and operations managers can meet the growing demand for increased supply chain efficiency by hiring on-demand freight unloading services in Maine by partnering with 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 Maine 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 your goal. 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.
Whether transporting seafood, or delicate electronic circuit boards, damages/losses can occur in transit that are caused by shifted freight. At our Maine-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.
