5 Benefits of logistics and road freight for your business
Running a fleet of trucks requires a large investment and is a full-time job in itself, not to mention the cost, time and effort that would also go into managing a warehouse. Understandably, unless you want to go into the trucking business, it’s always best to outsource your logistics needs to those with experience. In this post, we share 5 benefits of logistics and road freight for your business when you engage Cannon Logistics here in Queensland.
Outsourcing to logistic and road freight specialists, means you don’t have to worry about all the processes when it comes to deliveries and supplies – not just the transport part, but warehousing too. You’ll find you spend so much time just in running and maintaining your fleet of trucks, time you could use to grow your core business.
Firstly, you need to have funds to actually buy trucks to transport your goods, and then you’ll also have to think about warehousing needs. This can be a major drain on capital investment, money which could be used for other things, such as expand your business. Furthermore, If you add a loan to your business to purchase your fleet, then you’re also adding interest and the trucks end up costing more than their market value. Once you’ve purchased your fleet, you also have to think about the costs of employing drivers, paying for registrations, insurance, services, maintenance and repairs, as well as fuel.
Not only are you able to save money from not having to purchase trucks, you also don’t have to worry about getting extra equipment such as extra forklifts and pallets.
With our warehouse capabilities you are also given increased flexibility when it comes to storage. Our job doesn’t end until you have your goods safely. If your storage requirements were to increase or reduce, you wouldn’t have to worry about getting more storage space or paying for space you don’t need.
With Cannon Logistics, you don’t have to worry about logistics and warehouse operations, especially as we specialise in these services so you can be assured in faster delivery and less internal problems for you – it’s our business to make sure your produce or goods get to where they need to be and on time too.
