With gas prices at an all-time high, delivery companies are feeling the squeeze. For many businesses, the past few years have been a rollercoaster ride of challenges. First, there was a huge spike in demand for home delivery during pandemic lockdowns, which small retailers had to scramble to meet. Then the Great Resignation created a driver shortage. And now, high gas prices are cutting into margins at the same time as consumers are tightening their belts.
As fuel prices rise, so do shipping expenses. This impacts delivery services, as companies have to adapt to the ever-fluctuating cost of gas. Despite the complex details, as your business adapts, it’s essential to know how to manage fuel costs and keep your business afloat during times of high gas prices.
FlashBox offers great features and same-day delivery solution to cut costs.
With the price of gas steadily skyrocketing, outsourcing your client shipments to FlashBox may be the best alternative for your business. Managing all of your clients’ shipments means paying for the salary and benefits of the drivers as well as the upkeep of all the trucking equipment. Using fleet drivers can save you money on all of those costs.
Having your clients’ deliveries handled by a third-party service like FlashBox gives you more control over the delivery process. You won’t have to deal with other cargo being loaded or unloaded on the route to your destination. Plus, your clients can experience better delivery planning as well as on-time pick-ups and deliveries, along with real-time notifications on their orders. Using a specialized fleet reduces or eliminates the chance of package damage for your clients.
