Even if you already have a dedicated fleet that successfully meets the shipping and transportation needs of your company, there may be times when you will need to consider pop-up seasonal service. The following are the top three reasons that your organization may require the addition of pop-up services.
1 – Unexpected Increase in Customers
Pop-up seasonal service can provide transportation support when your current fleet is unable to meet the demands of new customers. While it is every company’s goal to introduce new markets and customers, this can present logistical issues – especially if your dedicated fleet is already at full capacity. There are many times when new customers are introduced due to specials or new market support. However, it may be difficult to make an accurate estimate of whether those new customers will remain long term. In this situation, pop-up seasonal service can provide your company with the additional trucks needed to meet the demands of new customers, while ensuring that you do not end up with additional fleet vehicles you may not need in the future.
2 – Peak Seasons
Many industries go through predictable periods when customer demand is higher or there is increased inventory output. These periods can tax an existing fleet, which can often lead to an inability to meet the demands of your customers. Peak seasons can vary from as little as a few days, up to several weeks in duration. Pop-up seasonal service will allow your business to have the additional trucks needed for the duration of peak season.
3 – Seasonal Demands
Many industries experience a drastic, and sometimes unexpected, increase in demand during holidays or specific seasons that cannot be handled by an existing fleet. This increase in demand can be further amplified if aligned within an industries peak season. While the increased profits during these periods may make the purchase of additional fleet vehicles possible, the additional costs may not make sense when those vehicles are sitting unused for the remainder of the year.
Pop-up seasonal services provide the solutions that your organization needs during specific and unexpected times, without requiring the additional costs of maintenance and storage for trucks when they are no longer needed to meet transportation demands.
