  • Opening Intro -

    In business, you have to have the right strategy to win.

    If you don’t, you will lose customers fast and it will be hard to earn them back.

With how competitive the shipping business is today, you need every advantage you can get. Taking care of your trucks is taking care of your customers. Here is what you should know.

Faster Shipping Times

When you don’t take care of your vehicles, different truck body parts can break down. You might have noticed that today’s customers, whether they are commercial or consumer, do not appreciate slow delivery times. They don’t care about your problems. Therefore, it is your job to take care of your customers by taking care of your trucks.

More Reliable Delivery

Speed is of the essence in today’s market. However, even more important is the reliability. If you are 100% reliable in following through on your promises but you are a little slower, customers will give you some slack.

However, if your trucks randomly go out of commission and they have to wait an extra three days beyond the original shipping time, good luck winning them back.

More Referrals

If your business is doing well, you should be getting referrals. One way to generate more of them is pleasing your current customers. When people get together, they talk.

So make sure they talk about how your logistics are always up to par and never disappoint. Then prepare for a line of referrals for life.

Better Marketing Angles

The more you please your customers, the more ammo you have in the marketing room when coming up with your next campaign. Give your team more leverage by actually taking care of your customers via great trucks running constantly on the road. You can spin that into a number of different ads on social media, tv, radio, and more. The options are endless when they are based in actually delivering results for your target market.

When it comes to the shipping industry, it is more competitive than ever. Long gone are the days where it was easy to set up shop and compete with the big companies just by having a route.

You need to continue to find ways to improve your offer. So don’t miss out on the chance to grow your company. Leverage the tips above and make sure your trucks are in the best shape possible so you can keep them on the road and please more customers.
