Group NB | Lumping and Recruitment Services - USA

Lumping Division

A key piece in a warehouse’s operations is its physical labour force. Lumpers, also sometimes referred to as “swampers”, are the backbone of any productive warehouse or facility, helping to reduce driver fatigue and injury risks for the carriers, reducing loading time and improving relations with customers for the shippers, increasing the speed at which inbound freight can be received, and allowing drivers to quickly go from one appointment to the next without delay. Third-party lumping services have been used by numerous large-scale carriers to increase productivity in almost every department.


A lumper is a physical labourer specialized in working in a warehouse or logistical environment. Lumpers are responsible for:
The physical loading and unloading of goods
The breakdown, repalletization and wrapping of pallets
The transfer of non-palletized loads onto pallets
Conducting inbound or outbound inventory checks
Ensuring that the final result of their work is ready to be shipped, received or stored
