It’s important to evaluate how much time you’re spending on certain tasks per week. This will help you see which of them are possible to outsource to a Drayage Specialist. You’ll free up your time to work on the business, not in the business.

Is it responding to emails, billing, paying drivers, entering orders, empty return locations, after hours support? These can take a lot of your personal time and a lot of time away from things you should be focusing on in your terminal. These are things that can be done by a Drayage Specialist.

2. Tasks that are easy to delegate

This could be making port and rail appointments, bookkeeping, scheduling pick-ups and deliveries. All these are easy to delegate, but time consuming.

This is an obvious one. Many owners that own terminals spend a lot of time setting up social media recruiting, digitizing their terminals so the right owner operator or driver sees them and what they have to offer or creating social media content. It usually has to with technology, design or editing posts, ads or websites. All the stuff that you’re not really good at, or you don’t know how to do, can be outsourced to a Drayage Specialist.
