You could be in the manufacturing business where a lot of heavy material needs to be brought in, in bulk amounts or you could run a manufacturing business that requires raw materials from suppliers to be brought to your factory and then your finished goods need to be warehoused and delivered to the market. In either case, it’s pretty evident that if goods were failed to be delivered on time, there can be huge consequences.
When you began your business, a small team of drivers were probably more than enough to get the job done as good as it needed to be but now that you’ve expanded, your means of transportation also need to scale with the rest of your business and go up a few notches. In fact, your transportation arrangement is one of most important components of your entire business plan; you need it to be efficient and reliable.
For most businesses, however, hiring full time drivers and maintaining their own fleet can be very expensive and non-feasible, so they do what most smart businesses do – they outsource. Like most things, when it’s outside of a businesses’ in house capacity; transportation and logistics can be outsourced to other businesses that provide commercial fleets and drivers.
Good transport service provides have access to the latest technology and software that they use to report a lot of transport data such as mileage, distance and time remaining and routes taken. Even if a business has a capacity to keep their own fleet, they may not be as up to date with these things as other businesses that provide these services alone are.
