In 2022, Michigan-made product exports totaled nearly $60 billion dollars. Not surprisingly, automotive parts are the top state export in excess of $13 billion dollars every year. Michigan’s food and agriculture products set a new record last year as well, with over $2.7 in grain and fresh produce exported nationally and globally. These goods and products are primarily moved either by rail (21%) or truck (approximately 60%). Both modes of shipping converge at warehouse loading docks throughout the state, where containers and trailers must be inspected and unloaded as swiftly as possible. Recent paradigm shifts in consumer spending, however, have impacted the timeline for products, goods, and perishables along supply chains nationwide. The recent pandemic gave rise to consumer demand for faster deliveries of products and goods. This has only placed a greater responsibility upon supply chain management to fulfill retailers’ and consumers’ needs faster than ever before. Logistics and operations managers can meet the growing demand for increased supply chain efficiency by hiring on-demand freight unloading services in Michigan by partnering with Labor Loop. We provide experienced, OSHA-certified, ‘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.
The need to meet shorter delivery schedules means that trailer and container unloading in Michigan is not a task left to your existing staffers trained in other disciplines. It is possible, however, to maintain tight schedules and hold the line on labor costs. Labor Loop invites your business managers to contact our team to discuss a cost-effective, highly efficient means to achieve your goal. Deployed on short-notice when and where they are needed, our on-demand lumper teams work quickly and efficiently to maintain both schedules and safety. Next, after their work has been inspected and approved, they depart. 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 Michigan-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. In addition, Labor Loop’s teams are fully experienced with all tools and equipment that freight unloading requires.
