Transport & Logistics businesses are some of the most difficult to manage.

Freight businesses might seem fairly simple to run, however they are particularly exposed to the impact of outside influences such as fuel prices and environmental conditions.
A very close eye on everything that impacts the profitability in a freight business is needed to ensure an overall profit. Each truck must be monitored closely for efficient running and maximum capacity utilisation. This requires clearly setting up targets and systems for measuring operational performance of both equipment and personnel. Careful analysis of margins by route and by customer ensures profit margins are being maintained over time.

Due to the high level of capital expenditure required it’s vital to measure the ‘return on investment’ of each piece of equipment. Every aspect of the operation of each item must be as efficient as possible to ensure an acceptable ROI. Lenders and investors lose confidence quickly if these aspects aren’t well managed.

When to purchase new equipment and how to finance it is key to ensuring maintaining an acceptable level of profit. Equipment maintenance schedules are also vital to ensuring minimum downtime and maximum ROI.

How do CFO services help with Business Growth Guidance?
Business Growth can be a tricky time for business owners.  The resources required to achieve sustainable growth needs careful consideration.  It’s tempting to think that growth in sales will fix everything else, however CFOs have experienced situations where this definitely isn’t the case! With business growth comes a need for extra cash to cover more sales, extra resources e.g. premises, wages, stock etc. to deliver more sales.  This needs to be carefully understood and the cash requirement factored in.  Extra funds may need to be sourced externally and a CFO can help ensure a business gets the funding it needs.  A Virtual CFO acts as a facilitator with lenders/investors to answer their questions and present the business as an attractive proposition for them.
