Private Fleet Or Dedicated?

“We were ready to be out of the trucking industry.”

Sound familiar? As companies look for ways to remain competitive in a challenging economic climate and in the face of a growing labor shortage in the trucking industry, re-evaluating the type of fleet they use can bring significant advantages.

Many metals and manufacturing companies operate private shipping fleets, which offer complete control and guaranteed capacity. That’s not the most cost-effective strategy for a lot of businesses, however. In this white paper, Ryder examines the costs and benefits of moving to a dedicated fleet.
