What is Dedicated Transportation?

Running your own fleet on top of your current business can be a much larger undertaking than many originally realize.

A hefty initial purchase, maintenance costs, hiring and training of new drivers, and the liability that comes with driving a truck are all included. More importantly, it can be difficult to focus on your business’ core competencies, while also ensuring deliveries are made on time.

That’s where a dedicated transportation provider comes in; with the right partner handling your operations and logistics, you have one less thing to worry about. Dedicated partners also allow you to create consistent and custom solutions to fit your demand.

Dedicated transportation companies can provide all the benefits of a private fleet like:

  • Consistent shipments and pricing
  • Simplify your operations and lower liability
  • Flexibility to work with your shipping and receiving schedule
  • Understanding your business’ needs

Communication is vital in logistics – one miscommunication, or missed detail could mean missing a delivery, which can harm your

company’s reputation. When choosing a dedicated partner, you want someone that helps your company simplify your operations and logistics.

A dedicated transportation service helps ensure your deliveries remain consistent, while maintaining a flexible shipping and receiving schedule. They are also responsible for sourcing, training, and finding replacement drivers as necessary. Without a 3PL, it is your responsibility to find coverage when a driver calls out; with a 3PL, your dedicated partner has you covered.

A dedicated transport partner is just that: a partner to help run your private fleet. “Trucking is responsible for most of the overland freight movement in the United States,” according to Statista. With more being transported by truck than other modes of transportation, it can be beneficial to consult a third-party logistics expert.

What could your business accomplish with more time to focus on your core competencies, and less time worrying about logistics and transportation?
