Know what you need
Before you get started with selecting transport providers, it’s important that you understand your requirements and know what you need. Ask yourself what type of transport services you need, whether there are any special requirements that need to be met such as temperature-controlled transports or hazardous goods transports and which geographical areas need to be covered.
Check what experience providers have and their reputation
Research potential transport providers and check out what experience they have and what their reputation is like. Make sure you take a look at their references, customer reviews, websites and social media channels as part of your investigation. Companies with a positive reputation are generally more reliable and provide a better service.
Check what certifications and licences they have
Make sure that the transport providers have all the certifications and licences they need. This is especially important if you have special transport requirements, such as needing them to transport hazardous goods. Certifications such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001 can be an indicator of quality and sustainability.
Check the size of their fleet and what equipment they have
Determine how large or small their transport fleet is and ascertain whether it meets the needs of your company. Also check what equipment their vehicles have, especially if you have special requirements such as needing refrigerated vehicles. A modern and well-maintained fleet is a sign of a reliable transport provider.
Work out if they are good value for money
Value for money is a key factor in deciding which transport provider to choose. Compare the prices and services from several different providers. But be sure to look at more than just the price – quality, reliability and customer service are all factors you need to consider, too.
