The transport industry brings its own complexities. There are courier businesses, line haul, refrigerated, express and specialist logistics businesses being launched every week. This brings increased competition in an industry already known for its competitive nature. Business owners have to deal with the introduction of industry regulations and unions, while trying to differentiate themselves in a competitive field.
Many operators establish their own warehousing networks to improve their value proposition, keep key customers and increase their revenue. The use of owner driver versus company owned vehicles creates issues, as does accessing funding to purchase sufficient vehicles or depots to service customer demands.
