Transport Topics in cooperation with Armstrong & Associates, Inc. has named The Shippers Group among the Top Dry Storage Warehousing Firms. With 4.5 million square feet of total space and 11 warehouse facilities nationwide, the company relies on their core values of integrity, innovation, excellence and safety to make The Shippers Group an even more proficient supply chain partner.
It’s no secret that there is a workforce shortage in the supply chain industry. As a result, we have had to become creative in hiring, staffing, recruiting and retaining talent. At The Shippers Group, hiring practices include both direct hire and temporary staffing, while after 90 days, temporary staff become full time employees. The Shippers Group is a Veterans at Work Partner with initiatives to fill roles by veterans and military spouses. We are also establishing national accounts with American Staffing Associated partners. Benefits of this partnership are reduced costs to fill, established relationships to improve hire trends, improved safety, standards for hiring, and industry recognized hiring practices.
