Missouri is legendary as the ‘show me’ state. And numerous states, especially Kansas, Illinois, and Tennessee ‘show them what they got’ by shipping goods to Missouri such as mixed freight, building materials, sand, and gravel. Air freight also accounts for $111 billion in commodities received within Missouri annually. The state receives another $1.5 billion in goods that travel an average of 1,246 miles by truck and rail to loading docks throughout Missouri. Additionally, soybeans, the state’s #1 crop, followed by beef cattle, turkeys, hogs, and dairy products provide sustenance to its residents as well as to citizens nationwide. Missouri is one of the Midwest’s largest supply chain contributors. However, many of their products are seasonal and perishable. This underscores the need for operations managers and others to seek on-demand freight unloading in Missouri to remain on schedule and to keep overhead costs in check.
The global pandemic crisis has only put an additional strain on supply chain efficiencies. The state’s products are sent by rail or truck and perishables such as dairy and fresh produce have a known shelf life likened to both a ticking clock and a ticking time bomb. The need to keep perishables fresh is key to Labor Loop’s services, including container unloading in Missouri. Our seasoned teams can be deployed immediately. These are OSHA-certified unloading professionals who, along with their supervisor, can assist in swiftly remediating when the unexpected occurs, such as shifted freight.
