The three pillars of success in the trucking world are:
It may seem obvious, but many experienced people still don’t know what these words actually mean. Take this story for example.
An old friend of mine, with more than 10 years in the business, knew how to survive in times of crisis. He recorded almost everything but did not know very well how to handle these records. With the arrival of the pandemic and the unpredictable scenario, things got really complicated.
The demand for the service grew and he was unable to meet it due to a lack of organization. That was when he had the idea to use technology to help.
That is how he came to Grydd. We provided him with an operating system capable of tracking the cargo from the beginning to the end of the routes and organizing the mess of documents in the most efficient way. He went from a frustrated businessman to a satisfied customer in the blink of an eye.
It’s time to recognize the power of computing to organize and sort (in order of importance) the necessary information. The use of an operating system that integrates all your applications and allows access to privileged forecasts is a game-changer.
Do you want to be sure of the quality of your shippers’ pay? How do you calculate maintenance costs? What if there are emergencies on the road?
As you can see, it is not just about storing data but using it to your advantage.
Is it possible to find the solution without knowing what the problem is? I don’t think so. This is where the importance of visibility comes in. Being able to observe your cargo from beginning to end, besides security issues, guarantees efficiency. With a powerful operating system analyzing in detail the fulfillment of the routes we can offer strategies to save time and money.
It is difficult to determine which goods and routes yield the most and cost the least without understanding the price of the mileage and the hazards the cargo faces. That is why one of the keys to success is visibility.
3- Customer base
Now that you know your best customers, you need to keep them. To do this we have to handle the billing correctly, thinking about this is a priority.
Finding new good relations is also part of the business. However, keeping your best customers is the best way to make money. Don’t miss opportunities for lack of capacity, have the best team by your side, and be prepared for the next crisis.
