For many years the Trucking industry in the U.S. has dealt with a scam called "Lumper Service". This is where customers charge the Trucking Companies to load or unload their own merchandise. This is a scam! How can someone get away with charging someone to unload or load their own merchandise? The cost of this has grown to outrageous levels. That would be like me ordering Pizza and then charging the delivery driver a fee for delivering my pizza. What is also a problem with "Lumper Service" is there no competition in this so we are stuck paying outrageous prices to unload our trailers. If we unload the trailer ourselves companies will pay the driver 25 to 30 dollars while paying Lumpers 150-800 to unload. Many of these companies will allow the driver to unload but make it difficult for us to unload using out of date or broken equipment. This should be a cost strictly between Shippers and Receivers. Not on the Trucking industry or the drivers. Many of these companies have also started the Lumper services themselves or get kick backs from the Lumper company. This practice needs go away. Companies should hire employees to unload their own products. This also raises the cost of goods to the general public. As long as the Lumpers are raising their costs it is passed down. This is a big scam that has gone on far too long and needs to come to an end.
