If you’re like many companies, you might worry you’re paying too much in freight and transport fees; or you might wonder if it would be more beneficial if your staff focused more on company work, instead of managing and coordinating truck loads.
Because of this, you might have considered using a dedicated fleet to move your industrial minerals and other dry bulk product. However, you don’t want to pay unnecessary fees or waste time on that end either. You worry that once you commit, you might be locked into a contract.
One of the ways that CCC Transportation works to help you is by offering a dedicated fleet in as little as 24 hours, and you only have to make a 14 day commitment. If you find that a dedicated fleet is ideal for your needs, you can make a larger commitment if you like, or keep making smaller ones. Either way is fine.
According to Inbound Logistics, most companies should only consider a long term dedicated fleet if they:
- Have freight flow that spans most of the year, instead of seasonal freight flow
- Have a large number of loads
- Have loads with decent backhauls
- Have 2-way freight flow
- Have to move freight through many lanes, or through expensive lanes in popular geographic areas, or
- Have to move freight regularly over 100-mile routes
However, a short-term dedicated fleet option allows more companies to enjoy the benefits of a dedicated fleet without having to worry about committing to something that doesn’t improve business.
In addition to more staff freedom and reduced fees, dedicated fleets offer you:
- On time delivery
- Regular access to specialized equipment
- Capacity guarantees, and
- Lower carrier rates to and from even the most popular geographic areas
In addition to providing you with a dedicated fleet to meet either your short-term or long-term needs, in as little as 24 hours, we share backhaul revenue with you and utilize a sophisticated and modern reporting system to free you and your staff from having to micro-manage your freight shipments. This allows you to get back to working on other more important company matters. Contact us today to learn more.
