Dedicated Transportation

Don’t let rising costs stop you from moving forward.

We understand that many companies currently operating their own fleets are scrambling to meet new federal and state regulations. For firms concerned about the road ahead, some hard choices loom.

Or maybe your company really needs the flexibility of its own fleet, but you are finding it to be an expensive option?

In both cases, we can help. Verst’s Dedicated Transportation services can provide your company with the solution you need.

The Case for Dedicated Transportation

TP-dedicatedfleet1

There are plenty of cost headaches facing today’s CFOs and fleet managers. Among them:

  • Installation of electronic logging devices (ELDs) will become mandatory at the end of 2017. Companies that don’t invest in this expensive technology for all their trucks will be in violation.
  • Emissions restrictions are difficult to manage, requiring new buys, or shorter leases.
  • Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) violations are costly. But they’re also avoidable expenses, if you can afford to keep apace of the regulatory environment.
  • Liability coverage is a major expense and, as the number of vehicles on U.S. roads continues to increase, so too will rates.
  • Older equipment in use today will become costlier to maintain as parts wear out and become harder to find.

We’ll Lighten the Load on Your Mind

Verst can leverage economies of scale and deep transportation experience, take on your current fleet, and manage it all — for less than you’re paying per day now.

We can reduce the hassle of maintaining your own equipment while maximizing your uptime.
