In Oregon, 70% of their annual freight tonnage is moved by truck, the remainder is divided between rail, air, and boat. Approximately 530 million dollars of freight is transported to and from the state every year. However, over the past 5 years, consumers’ expectations of delivery times have increased. There is far greater demand placed on Oregon’s supply chain overseers as consumers are growing accustomed to two and sometimes one-day fulfillment.
This means that for many products, supply chains have entered the era of two- and even one-day delivery, and “goodbye” to longer shipping times. This increased demand puts greater pressure on logistics overseers to deliver on these heightened expectations or lose business to their competitors. Due to the exponential rise in consumer expectations, logistics management has been forced to find workable fulfillment solutions 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 Oregon 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 Oregon is not a job for unskilled labor- it takes far more than physical strength to perform correctly. 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. Hiring on-demand freight unloading services in Oregon means partnering with a dependable, reliable, OSHA-trained and certified team: Labor Loop. 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 underwrite benefit costs.
Poorly loaded cargo due to haste or inexperience greatly increases the possibility for damages and losses while in transit. These are caused by shifted freight. At our Oregon-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.
