FAQs

  1. What is a lumper receipt? A lumper receipt is a record used to document the lumper fees that are charged for services rendered typically in the transportation and logistics industry for goods delivered into a warehouse location. Lumper fees are typically paid upfront by a driver who in turn will seek reimbursement from their broker, carrier or the shipper of the goods in order to cover the costs of having the lumper unload or load the the truck. Lumper receipts are used to document these lumper payments so that there is a record of both the lumper fee and the method of payment. In addition, lumper receipts can provide valuable information for trucking companies when it comes to how to pay lumper fees, tracking expenses, and managing their budget. For these reasons, lumper receipts are an important part of the logistics and shipping process.
  2. How do lumpers work? A lumper is someone who is hired to load or unload cargo from a truck particularly in a cold storage warehouse receiving refrigerated goods that may require special handling and sorting. Lumpers are usually third-party or independent contractors. Typically, they are paid by the truck driver or the company that owns the truck. Depending on the situation, lumpers may be paid an hourly rate or a flat fee. In some cases, lumper fees are paid by the shipper, receiver, or broker. Lumper fees are typically $100 or more, and lumper receipts are usually required for proof of service and reimbursement of lumper payments made by a driver. If one is charged lumper fees, Lumper payments can usually be made with cash, fleet check, or credit card.
  3. Is being a lumper hard? Being a lumper can be hard work. Lumpers are required to lift and carry heavy boxes and containers. But being a lumper  is also important work. Lumpers help to keep the flow of goods moving through warehouses and distribution centers, playing a vital role in the supply chain. Lumpers are paid to load and unload trucks, and they often have to do so in difficult or dangerous conditions. While lumper fees can be expensive, the service is crucial to ensuring efficiency with the loading and unloading of goods particularly refrigerated items. Lumpers are typically paid by the hour or via a contracted amount and should provide a lumper receipt for any lumper fees charged and/or lumper payments made.
  4. What is another name for lumper? Although lumper is the most common name for this type of worker, they are also sometimes referred to as lumpers-on or lumpermen. The term lumper comes from the word lumps, meaning big pieces or chunks. This name is likely chosen because lumpers typically handles larger pieces of cargo than regular dock workers. In addition, lumpers are often hired on a per-job basis, as opposed to being part of a regular dock workers union. Because of this, they are sometimes known as lumpermen or lumpermen-on. Whatever you call them, these workers play an important role in loading and unloading cargo at warehouses, docks and ports.
