Third-Party Warehouse Services Provider or Temp Staffing Agency?

When your warehouse or distribution center is faced with a staffing shortage, there are two main alternatives for outsourced labor. You could take the course of hiring temporary help. Many DC operators or HR managers in this situation will call the nearest warehouse temp agency and request a number of part-time workers to provide the support they need to fill a gap. However, a better alternative is to hire Merit Logistics to provide your warehouse services. You should seriously consider this alternative to working with a temporary staffing agency, because it offers significant bottom-line advantages.

Temp warehouse staffing agencies simply can’t offer the same level of expertise as Merit Logistics. Temporary employees:

      • are not supervised
      • are not incentivized for their performance
      • require significant training by the client on how to work in their facility
      • may have the basic skills to unload a truck or pick product, but most often will not have the expertise, proficiency, and drive to succeed that distinguish Merit Logistics’ associates.

 While a temp agency may appear to be the obvious option to resolve a short term, immediate, or increased need for warehouse support, you might be interested to learn how a dedicated and professional workforce is truly the key to reducing overall operating costs, driving efficiencies, and allowing you to focus on actually growing your core business. Our warehouse teams – under the supervision of a dedicated onsite manager – keep our client sites operating at peak performance.
