AFS Warehouse Labor Support Solutions

As the landscape of warehouse labor continues to present challenges, American Freight Service (AFS) offers a tailored solution to enhance your operations. We understand that the success of your supply chain relies not only on efficient lumping, rework, and cross-docking services but also on the availability of skilled labor to support your unique warehouse needs.

How can warehouse and 3PL labor support solutions address the intricacies of labor shortages and elevate your warehouse management?

Strategic Diversification of Services

While many warehouse labor providers are recognized for their lumping and fulfillment capabilities, AFS takes it a step further. Our services extend beyond traditional functions, offering specialized support such as repacking, inspection, and light repairs. This strategic diversification not only improves brand visibility but also mitigates quality control concerns, providing comprehensive value to your warehouse.

Efficient Onboarding with Minimal Training Time

AFS understands the urgency of addressing labor shortages promptly. Our support team arrives pre-trained and ready to contribute. With certifications in forklift operation and comprehensive understanding of OSHA safety protocols, our professionals seamlessly integrate into your warehouse operations. Minimal training time ensures swift adaptation and immediate productivity, reducing the lead time before making a positive impact on client services.

Protecting Your Driving Workforce

As the truck-driving labor force ages, AFS plays a crucial role in safeguarding the longevity of your drivers’ careers. By handling tasks like lumping, our team reduces physical strain on drivers, helping them extend their careers. Additionally, our efficient labor support minimizes work hours, ensuring compliance with federal regulations for rest, ultimately reducing the risk of driving mistakes.

During growth phases, our team handles heavy lifting, allowing you to focus on service excellence.
