5 Reasons to Choose a Dedicated Fleet
Transportation is one of the most essential components of your business — without it, your products would never make it into the hands of consumers. So, this is not a decision you want to take lightly.
When choosing transportation services for your company, one of the best choices you can make is with a dedicated fleet. Read on to learn why we recommend a Bender Transportation dedicated fleet.
Understanding a Dedicated Fleet
A dedicated fleet is exactly what it sounds like in that it’s comprised of tractors, trailers, trucks, drivers, and other resources that are solely committed to serving the logistical needs of only one customer.
The Benefits of a Dedicated Fleet
The best thing about partnering with Bender Transportation is that we customize our fleet to suit your needs. If you decide to utilize our dedicated fleet, the following are the advantages you can expect.
1. Stable Service
When you use over-the-road (OTR) or brokerage drivers, they transport for many different companies, so they won’t know your specific company as well. Dedicated fleet drivers only run your freight and know what you need and prefer when it comes to transportation services. The driver will know what to do when they arrive at your facility, so you’ll save time and money having to instruct them. Further, it’s easier to develop a personal relationship with your driver when you see the same ones daily.
2. Available Resources
Using a dedicated fleet gives your company access to any resources you need, and the availability of specialized equipment you may not receive through a private fleet. Better yet, there isn’t a waiting period while you establish your own fleet. You simply hire us and then get back to focusing on what matters to you — your business.
3. Cost Savings
If you run your freight through a private fleet, you own the trucks and employ the drivers and dispatchers. These costs, including fuel, insurance, employee benefits, and insurance, to name just a few, can add up more quickly than you expect. When you use Bender Transportation for your dedicated fleet needs, we take care of those maintenance costs and truck payments. Essentially you get to enjoy a devoted carrier without any of the responsibility, risk, or work.
4. Management Delegation
Your dedicated service fleet is always available to you, but it’s not under your management. You don’t have to worry about hiring and directing drivers yourself, which would be a substantial added responsibility to your plate load. We take care of finding and managing your dedicated fleet’s drivers.
5. Scalable Solutions
If you’re using a private fleet and your business suddenly grows and needs more available resources, it could cost you significantly. But, a dedicated fleet’s resources are always ready and available to be added to your service, along with offering multiple shipping options to fit your company’s requirements. And, a dedicated fleet will be more flexible to your changing needs than a private fleet.
