Is this Question on Your Mind?

Is Operating a Private Fleet the Best Option for My Business?

We never intended to be in the trucking business however as the company has grown so has our capital investment required to deliver our product.  Hiring drivers, training drivers and keeping drivers is a challenge.  Managing the fleet and keeping in compliance with FMCSA has become a full time job.  Is there a competitive advantage to having our own fleet?

What if we could keep the same drivers, keep the same trucks and improve our deliveries?  What if we could eliminate BIPD and W/C?  What if we could do all of the above and lower our cost to deliver our products.

At PTG we offer a no obligation private fleet analysis.  We focus on the current status of your fleet as well as the “evolution of your fleet”.  Our partnership will take a deep look at your current business as well as a future look of where you will be in the coming years.  All while focusing on taking care of your customers.

 

We Can Help You Compare Apples to Apples

When you’re assessing your current costs for a private fleet against outsourcing to a dedicated contract carriage provider, it’s hard to get to a true comparison. As part of our sales consult, we’ll sit down with you to go through the full list so you’re in a position to make the best decision for your company.

Admin costs to bring new driver onboard ? Legal costs for issues related to a driver incident ? Backup driver coverage or outsourcing during your driver’s vacation ? Billbacks from your current truck leasing company ? These are just a few examples of what you may not be thinking about.

Contact us today to set up an appointment so you can compare apples to apples.
