Trucking Carriers Seeing Shift from Private to Dedicated

Considering outsourcing your delivery and/or logistics options?  Here is some food for thought - 
An excerpt taken from:
The Journal of Commerce (note: login is needed to access the rest of the article at www.joc.com)

"More than ever, companies are looking to outsource their fleets so they can focus on their core competencies. A DCC (Dedicated Contract Carrier) solution frees up capital and management to work on more strategic issues, which is where many companies feel their focus needs to be right now. We've seen a definite increase in prospects this year," he said.


Schneider's Jadin also has seen an uptick in inquiries. "As the economy has worsened, companies are deciding to concentrate on their core competency rather than continuing to operate a private fleet," he said. "Outsourcing to a transportation provider whose core competency is transportation makes good economic sense from the standpoint of a preservation of capital to their core competence, and also from a risk-mitigation perspective as it relates to the potential liability associated with running a private fleet."
