Private Fleet Conversion – Is It Time?

Posted by on Friday, January 31, 2014 in News

If your company manages its own fleet, then you’re already aware of the massive amount of time, energy and money that goes into maintaining those trucks. It may be time to consider a private fleet conversion and let a professional carrier handle the load both literally and figuratively.

By handing over the reigns to a well-established, respected carrier, you can take the trucking function away from your business and dedicate those resources elsewhere. Running a well-oiled fleet requires serious capital investment – investment that could be used elsewhere to grow and improve your business. When you commit to a private fleet conversion you no longer have to worry about things like; driver training, fuel costs, insurance, equipment repairs and replacement, and the big one – liability. One bad accident could take down your entire business.

Assigning those headaches to a professional carrier means you not only get a release from the costs and time required to maintain a fleet – you also get the added benefit of peace of mind from knowing a company that specializes in trucking is handling your goods. What if something unexpected happened to one of your trucks minutes before it was due out on the road – do you have a spare? How much time will it take to juggle around trucks, drivers and product, and how will it affect your on-time record with the customer? These are real issues. Customer service is everything, and being dependable is the hallmark of a good company. A private fleet conversion alleviates those concerns, because your carrier has the resources to deal with any eventuality as it occurs.

Specialization in commerce is good. No one knows your particular trade better than you do, and when you can give your core business everything you’ve got resource-wise, then the company thrives. Your carrier company knows the trucking and logistics business and can help you realize more profit and more peace of mind. So, is it time to convert your fleet? We think so.
