Dedicated Contract Carriage (DCC)
There are a myriad of reasons companies choose to operate their own fleet and many do it well and for all the right reasons. However, upon closer scrutiny it is often determined that the numbers just don’t add up, especially when one factors in the hidden costs that aren’t carried on a P&L and are hard to quantify.
The cost of operating a company fleet, combined with the liabilities associated with commercial vehicles is steadily rising, not to mention all of the administrative costs and headaches (hiring/retaining drivers, training, DOT compliance etc…). When these costs or liabilities get too high, we would like to have the opportunity to sit down with you and discuss your options. I am confident that you can remain competitive in the marketplace and reduce your exposure when outsourcing some or all of your transportation services. Even if outsourcing all of your transportation needs is not the answer, I am confident that we can help you reduce costs and hassles on a spot or limited basis.
