Why it makes sense to outsource to a haulage courier
Outsourcing is a common practice of business functions. The benefits of outsourcing can be substantial – from cost savings and efficiency gains to greater competitive advantage. Outsourcing can also help to make your business more flexible and agile, able to adapt to changing market conditions and challenges, while providing cost savings and service level improvements. Haulage is no exception.
For most hauliers, their level of need doesn’t sit at a consistent level throughout the year. As in any industry, there are peaks and troughs. To work at maximum efficiency, hauliers should be able to alter the amount of resources they need to draw on throughout the year. Outsourcing to Speedy Freight allows you to do exactly that.
Take the example of driver holidays or sickness. When you’re short-staffed it is your customers who feel the impact as their deliveries are delayed, potentially with significant consequences. In unfortunate situations like this, Speedy Freight can step in to support your team and keep your customer service at its optimum position.
Call us today and we can have a driver at the designated collection point within the hour. With access to a fleet of over 4,000 vehicles in a variety of shapes and sizes, we are more than capable of taking on any load you might have. Speedy Freight operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year so we’re always ready to take your call.
As well as helping out in unexpected and emergency situations, Speedy Freight can also provide a vital service at times of high demand. No company wants to turn away business simply because they don’t have the vehicles or drivers to fulfil orders. Thinking to the long term, hiring additional drivers isn’t necessarily the best option. When the peak period of demand passes, you could be left dramatically overstaffed. Far more efficient is outsourcing to a haulage courier like Speedy Freight.
