When it comes to making decisions for your business, it’s always important to weigh the costs and benefits. For a business owner who runs a trucking company, there will be an opportunity to choose between a private fleet and a contract fleet service. Sure, a private fleet will allow more control for the business owner, but it also means the owner incurs the overhead costs of the operation. It’s important to select a partner that can supply you with the best of both worlds — the customization of a private fleet with the low costs of a dedicated contract fleet service.
Disadvantages of a Private Trucking Fleet
In addition to overhead costs, several other disadvantages of opting for a private trucking fleet include:
- Liability for accidents
- Empty backhaul
- Increased paperwork and administrative costs
- Capital requirements
- Liability for cargo damage and theft
