Know and use your spare capacities!
The European KPI Benchmarking of concipio management solutions helps you to manage your direct expenses. A holistic view of all profit drivers also demands an active management of your trade expenses. For logistics companies with own trucks, these costs are direct expenses. For the majority of companies buying truck-capacity is the normal case, though. An optimization of the gross profit, meaning the margin between the invoiced turnover and the costs of procurement for freight capacity, is crucial for economic success. The described margin can be increased in 3 different ways:
- Increase your sales prices.
- Procure freight capacities at a lower price.
- Improve the usage of your capacity.
Point number 3 is often not considered as important as necessary to gain maximum profit from the capacities that are used. Do you offer scheduled services? Do you have fixed departure times? Then, the optimal usage of the capacities is extremely important but difficult to achieve. Use your spare capacities and improve the usage of your freight hold – you have paid for it already!
