March 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #53: Branching Out With Your Shipping Company

Tip of the Week

Growing a business can be a difficult task for some start-up companies. There are many large shipping companies that started out as a few people, with a few trucks, in one location. The key to growing your start-up shipping company is to branch out to a new area whenever you have the financial means to do so.

As profit comes in, you may be able to rent an office space, buy a few more trucks, and hire a manager and several drivers in a new area. The best place to do this would be at least 30 miles away from any of your current locations, in a large town or city. This will give you a new area in which to advertise, promote your business, and gain customers.

Once you have several locations, you can begin to combine your routes so that you can cover the most amount of space with one driver. This will help your shipping company save money that can be used for advertising or to establish another location.
