With the amount of already existing trucking companies in the industry today, your private business can’t afford to slack in any way, shape, or form. TeamOne Logistics shares the top three ways to run a profitable private trucking company:
1. Establish a clear brand identity. Who are you? How can you help others? Do you provide customers with something that your competition doesn’t? Establish what makes your company unique, and consistently make efforts to further develop your brand identity. Use company colors online and on your fleets, make your presence known on social media, and carry your branding over to all aspects of your business and the industry.
2. Hire the ultimate staff and clients. First and foremost, hire the right employees. Having a skilled and dedicated staff ensures your company will provide stellar service to clients with every experience. Secondly, build your customer list by personally taking the time to make calls and connect with potential leads online. Establishing relationships with clients increases the likelihood of repeat business which will earn you a consistent income.
3. Comply with all regulations, laws, and mandates on time. Changes regularly occur within industries. For example, a recent change within the trucking industry is the ELD Mandate which requires trucking businesses to transfer from a previous paper logging method to new electronic logging devices. It is up to business owners to stay up-to-date with regulations and policies to ensure you’re following the law as well as providing the best possible service to both your clients and employees.
