Lease Courier Drivers and Delivery Vehicles
Q. What is “Driver and vehicle Outsourcing” ?
A. Driver and vehicle outsourcing is the practice of arranging company like Mercury Delivery Services providing your company vehicles and drivers from a third party. These drivers are not employed with your firm, thereby reducing your liability exposure.
Q. We’re not in the trucking business. Why should we consider outsourcing professional drivers?
A. Most companies outsource services that are not considered part of their core business. The distribution of goods falls within this category. Your goods need to get to market on a consistent and reliable basis. Distribution outsourcing companies are professionals in recruiting the most qualified individuals available in the marketplace. The experienced professionals at Mercury are experts at securing the services of drivers, dispatchers, warehouse personnel, and logistical supervisors. Why not leave this to the pros while you continue to concentrate on making your core business more profitable?
Q. How big do I have to be to make outsourcing worthwhile?
A. Outsourcing personnel is a cost effective way of allowing you time to concentrate on what makes you money. In other words, you can better operate your profit center by freeing yourself up from dealing with a cost center. If you operate 1 pick-up truck, or even a passenger vehicle used to transport executives, you can benefit from using Mercury. The last thing you need is to have your supply chain disrupted due to sickness, no shows, etc. Alternatives to outsourcing (using other internal personnel) are always very expensive.
Q. Our firm hires its own drivers. Why should we change?
A. Well, let’s see…
• To save money
• To save time.
• To become more efficient at your core competencies
• To secure a better, more professional class of personnel.
• To alleviate the headaches associated with recruiting, screening, payroll,
paperwork and behavioral issues.
• This list can go on and on!
Mercury personnel are specialists in recruiting professional drivers. We know all the methods undesirables use to pass pre-employment screening tests. We select only the most qualified personnel. Plus, we supply replacement personnel for both scheduled vacation periods and unforeseen absences.
Q. How can personnel outsourcing save me money?
A. There are many ways of improving the cost effectiveness of operating a business. One of the least understood, is the value of having outside experts provide services that neither you nor your personnel are experienced in. Then consider the extra time you would enjoy by not having to deal with the recruitment, screening and payroll processes. And then consider the cost of “lost opportunities” resulting from your time being taken up with tasks not contributing to bottom-line profits. Your time may be better spent managing those areas where you specialize your PROFIT CENTERS What Using Mercury Means To You:
