How can you go about procuring a fleet from Speedy Freight? What are the advantages of using Speedy Freight’s courier service? Is procurement cheaper than running your own fleet? We're here to explain how you can benefit from our procurement services, no matter what industry you’re in. Here at Speedy Freight, our diversity, expertise and commitment mean that we’re always ready for action.
What is Fleet Procurement?
Procurement refers to the obtaining or buying of goods and services. In the freight world, fleet procurement relates to companies who wish to outsource their transport and logistics needs to a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, such as Speedy Freight.
Why Outsource Rather Than Run Your Own In-House Fleet?
Running your own fleet might seem like a straightforward solution, but it comes with a range of hidden costs that can significantly impact your bottom line.
Maintenance: Vehicle maintenance is a constant concern. The costs associated with regular servicing, unexpected repairs, and the gradual wear and tear of the fleet can add up quickly.
Fuel: Fluctuating fuel prices and the constant need to refuel can be unpredictable. Speedy Freight takes on the responsibility of managing fuel costs efficiently, ensuring optimal routes and fuel consumption.
Insurance: Insurance premiums for a fleet can be substantial. Speedy Freight includes insurance as part of its service, alleviating the burden of managing and negotiating insurance coverage.
Staffing: Employing and managing drivers, administrative staff, and other personnel involves significant overhead. Speedy Freight handles the staffing aspect, ensuring trained professionals are at the helm of your logistics operations.
By outsourcing to Speedy Freight, you mitigate these hidden costs, allowing your company to allocate resources more efficiently and concentrate on core business activities.
