@Shwets,
I once tried providing a lumper service but within three weeks I was being treated for a hernia.

I'd never heard of it 'til now. I just looked it up:
"The term "lumper service" comes from the colloquial reference of freight handlers as lumpers. A lumper will unload the freight from a trailer and break down the pallets into smaller bundles if required per the receiver's instructions. Some fleet drivers and independent owner-operators unload their own shipments without the use of a lumper service. Section 15 of the Motor Carrier Act of 1980 makes it a federal offense to coerce delivery drivers to use a lumper service."

@Shwets,
Unless something has changed, lumper services are engaged by the truckers, not the producer of the goods.
