Each industry has its own set of best practices and trends. In the trucking industry, there are certain strategies that product better results than others. TeamOne Logistics shares three of the best practices and trends among private fleets within trucking companies:
1. Installing quality software: There are various types of software available to install on your fleets. Ensure your drivers are driving to the best of their ability by utilizing efficient tracking software that will measure mileage, timing, gas usage, and load optimization. Additionally, it is important to ensure you comply with new mandates and regulations as early and as timely as possible.
2. Leasing fleets instead of buying: Private fleets may not be as concerned with purchasing and keeping an inventory of vehicles. Similarly, most private trucking businesses do not travel cross-country with their vehicles. With this in mind, leasing has proven to be the best monetary investment choice for private trucking companies.
3. Providing optimal customer service: Customer service is a company’s best tool for providing the ultimate experience. Make sure that you hire employees wisely, as they are the face of your business. Your staff, both in-house and on the road, should be trained properly and well-equipped to deal with all client situations.
