Maximizing Productivity and Profitability

April 23, 2015 – 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EDT

We all know that the quickest way to increase profit is to reduce costs. I know – “Easier said than done,” and as far as increasing your pricing that’s tough because shippers are looking for lower prices not higher ones.

The first step in managing your costs is to really know what they are – being able to account for both the variable costs, (the cost of running a load from point A to point B), and your fixed costs, (facilities, administrative salaries, etc.)

  • Knowing the profit contribution of individual shippers, lanes, and down to individual trucks and loads
  • Being able to have the information you need to make decisions regarding the future of your business
  • Knowing how you are performing today against the Vital Signs that mark your company’s progress
  • Having the ability to consistently price loads profitably
  • and most importantly, Having the information you need to negotiate with shippers honestly and factually

On April 23, Trincon Group will be hosting a special webinar on Cost Management as a open forum to explore ideas and tactics to help you improve your profitability and return on assets.

I hope you’ll join us for this special event.

Driver Development and Retention

June 18, 2015 – 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST

According to Albert Einstein the definition of insanity is, “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” We have to try a new approach.

The solution requires that we step back, look at the problem differently, and consider different solutions. For years we tried throwing money at the problem and at drivers, attempting to lure them to one company or another. The result – driver turnover still hovers around 100% and the shortage continues.

Trincon has worked with companies across the country on this issue for over 20 years. We have seen highly successful TL companies reduce turnover from near 100% to less than 35%.

This webinar will take an objective look at driver development and retention and suggest some new ideas and comprehensive solutions:

• Looking at drivers as “professionals” and as employees looking for a long-term career path
• Implementing hiring and “on-boarding” procedures that encourage retention and longevity
• Providing compensation that rewards skills, experience and tenure in addition to productivity
• Fulfilling employee’s (drivers) need for defined expectations, recognition and consistent communication
• Defining processes that hold drivers accountable

Trincon Group will explore ways to address these questions, and others, and start to define steps you can take right now to attract new drivers, and perhaps most importantly, keep the ones you have.
