Lumpers have been around in the trucking industry for many, many years. It’s nothing new.
However, lumpers, individuals or companies which unload trucks, have taken on a life of their own.
It’s an industry scam, which is illegal, but in the past, not very well patrolled nor enforced.
It is illegal to charge the driver of the truck for unloading it, IF the driver is not reimbursed. So this would apply to company drivers.
As for owner operators, the arrangement with the trucking company to whom they are contracted to, should be part of their contractual agreement.
Don’t get caught by paying for lumping fees and then not reimbursed in a timely manner. Best not to pay for the lumping service in the first place.
