As in most industries, there are numerous jargon terms to describe key tasks. Freight unloading can also be called ‘container devanning’, ‘stripping’, ‘unstuffing’, or simply, unloading the container. While freight unloaders work to remove products and goods from a variety of transport vehicles, devanning is the term most often associated when sealed containers are unloaded. It is not a job for unskilled labor, nor should it be attempted by employees ‘borrowed’ from other responsibilities to remove container contents. Devanning a container may not be a daily task that necessitates hiring full-timers. The ideal solution for shippers, receivers, and operations managers is to contact Labor Loop whenever they need professional freight unloading services.
