Why Freight Is Not Your Specialty, And It’s Ok
Logistics and transportation can seem a bit daunting at times. Even a transportation manager, with years of experience, can’t shield your company from the ever-evolving transportation sector. With the influx of private equity and venture capital coming into both struggling and growing businesses, the market will call upon more experts in the transportation department.
How can this statement be true?
Many times the Chief Financial Officer of a large distribution facility may not be getting the reporting he wants or needs to accurately forecast the profitability of the transportation department. When new investors show interest in this business, reports of key metrics, data points and KPI’s are extremely important. The CFO will often task the transportation manager with finding these reports and key metrics and most of the time, he will hear crickets. When he hears crickets, BlueGrace Logistics hears opportunity.
