Your Specific Situation
Cogent believes each situation and company is different, but we have found that transportation company owners have the same questions.
- How can I keep on top of maintenance, and control my cost of running mile? Cogent provides best practices and metrics for scheduling, labor costs, regulatory compliance and certification, maintenance/repair, fleet management, dead heading, dispatch, load on/load off and rolling cost per mile/individual.
- How do I make more money? We train people to effectively manage by understanding job costing, how to control accounts receivables, profit margins, budgets, financials and cash flow.
- How can I increase sales, find customers, and bid/estimate better? We offer go-to market strategies to improve revenue through business development, diversification, better estimating/bidding, improved customer service and a sales training program.
- How do I find and keep good drivers? At Cogent, we put processes in place to find and keep drivers by addressing employee performance, showing how to find and retain employees, leadership development and improving the company’s incentives.
