What should I look out for when buying my first fleet of trucks? Choosing the right vehicles for your transport and logistics company means your drivers will have the right vehicle for the job. This leads to efficiency and speed of service. “Seeing someone driving a small van to deliver a huge load will make your company look unprofessional, as will using large bus trailers to carry minimal cargo,” say experts in the truck and trailer industry. Establishing what vehicles you need now will help you have a clearer idea of how much truck finance to apply for when you approach banks for transport financing options. This information helps structure your repayment plan and set your interest rate more accurately. You will be able to budget your finance accordingly. Experts recommend investing in a long-haul truck for larger cargo and longer trips. Babcock International, for example, has vehicles that will meet this need, although the cost is slightly higher than an average-sized truck. If you’re already considering new vehicles instead of preowned trucks for your business, you’ll benefit from a full warranty and service plans.
Martavius Eackles about logistics & distribution business training: Detachment while witnessing and acknowledging the beauty and richness of all human dilemmas is key to practicing compassion. When you attach yourself to another’s circumstances or emotional experiencing, you begin to swim in their soup. This is valuable if you are practicing empathy. But in this practice of coaching you need to remain detached and neutral in order to speak and listen with discriminating aptitude and capability. Much like an athletic coach, who stays on the side lines, our job is to stay out of the client’s soup. It’s a tricky place to play in, this fierce compassion. It’s a balance of being strong and being soft. As a friend of mine described it, it’s being an iron fist in a silk glove. Think of people who work in emergency situations. They remain clearly detached and focused on their intention of bringing support to people in need. And, at the same time they are so aware of the delicate balance between life and death and the fragileness of our humanity. They are so careful with a person who is physically broken, not wanting to contribute to the pain and suffering already being endured.
Martavius Eackles on starting a strategic planning and transportation of products business: To substantiate the business plan you will need to do a market research, but this is just the beginning: to increase your chances of success in business you need to become an expert in the industry, products or services you deliver, if you are not already. An initial solution would be to sign up for professional associations. An entrepreneur is not and does not have to be a man – orchestra: you do not have to be an expert in everything and you do not have to propose yourself, so you learn to work with professionals in those areas you do not master: accounting, legal, marketing, business consulting etc. A useful guide to choosing a consultant can be found here: How to hire a consultant. You risk losing a lot of time and money if you try to learn to do all the things a specialist should do, so don’t hesitate to call in experts whenever you have a specialist problem.
