English term or phrase:lumping
"For example, the practice of lumping is often permitted, if not encouraged, by companies who own the loading docks. This allows these companies to avoid having to do the loading or unloading themselves. .....
A lumper service is a third party logistics company that usually resides on a site that provides truck and trailing unloading services to warehouse and distribution facilities. Employing a lumper service can be a huge advantage to a distribution company. Some of the benefits include: cut overtime hours, assistance in day to day operations, and provide back up when you are short handed. Because lumper services are paid on productivity they always get the job done in a timely manner. If the lumpers are not productive it reflects on their payroll so they have a huge incentive to move fast.
