Dedicated Contract Carriage

We build flexibility and scalability into the dedicated solutions we design – giving you limitless capacity around the clock without the worry of financing, maintaining, insuring and managing a fleet.
  • Reducing capital expenditure
  • Increasing service levels
  • Reducing risk and costs
Solution
The trend towards customised and outsourced transportation systems means the dedicated fleet is fast becoming a critical component in the supply chain. Financing, maintaining, insuring and managing a fleet, making sure every vehicle is compliant with environmental and safety regulations and continually training drivers all make a strong enough argument for outsourcing – especially when running fleets isn’t one’s core capability. But how exactly is a ‘dedicated fleet’ best packaged? At Crossroads, we build flexibility and scalability into the custom solutions we design – giving you limitless capacity around the clock.
