From a financial standpoint, each organization will need to determine whether or not outsourcing is a cost-effective option. Let’s look at some of the points to consider when crunching numbers.

This is a cost that increases every year so depending on the scope of your business, it may make sense to have someone else bear this burden. If you consider not only the capital investment, but also the increased liability of it can easily become apparent that outsourcing might be the best choice.
A qualified and trained fleet tailored to meet the needs of your operation could be a large advantage for a company looking to grow and/or focus attention on their own sustainable competitive advantage. And choosing a trucking company that offers dedicated service will allow you to outsource with the added advantage of maintaining a fleet that will perform as an extension of your own already established business.
