Time to remember:
On crisp Tuesday morning in September 2001 …… I was the operations manager for Con-way Air at the airport in Romulus. At 850 I got a phone call from a sales rep telling me that plane hit the World Trade Center, I told him you’re joking. I turned on the TV in the office and they were showing replays of the plane hitting the first tower and then shortly after that… I seeing the second plane hit the second tower. On that day the world stopped we were all glued to the TV watching Peter Jennings or Dan Rather or whatever channel you were watching at the time. They were telling you about a plane that hit the Pentagon in Washington DC and then a plane went down in a field in Pennsylvania. You asked yourself why and how could this happen to us.
Then back in New York City watching most people flee the building, and then you see the bravest in their profession running into the building. In the hours that followed we watched in horror as buildings come tumbling down. In the days to come we watched America united with one common goal, to find as many Americans live as possible. Then we watched American pride grow as an announced that they have found someone alive in the rubble, and again they made that announcement and the pride grow even more.
We had a president who sat in the Oval Office and use words like’’ resilient’’ and ‘’resolve’’. We had a country that was united both in anger and pride we had politicians on both sides standing up saying that we will not fail. We rebuilt the nation we rebuilt our buildings when it was said and done the worst tragedy in US history took the souls of 2977 American ……… All because of the cowardly act of 19 men.
Too many people want to forget that it happened,. So the next you are on line at the airport and you hear somebody complaining about security. Stop and think about the children that have grown up without mothers or father. Or wives’ who have lost their husbands. And husbands who have lost their wives’…….We will never forget.
As you read this I hope that you take time not only to remember but to pray for 2977 souls that were lost that day but also for the thousands that was either lost or wound in the two wars that followed and that someday hatred will be wiped out of this world.
Oh yes, Lord I have one more request that you allow the leadership of this great nation to get their head out of their ass, and let us restore this country to its greatness.

What is the true cost of running a transportation company?

In today's society everybody wants everything for the cheapest price possible. When it comes to choosing a transportation company the majority of the companies are choosing a transportation provider by price alone.

Trucking is the most common means of transporting merchandise in North America. Although the field is competitive, opportunities exist for motivated entrepreneurs who have sufficient investment capital and a sensible business plan. As in most businesses, there will be a nerve-racking lag between the time you begin pouring money into the venture and the time you start to see a profit.

Fuel

Diesel fuel is a large, necessary and ongoing expense in the trucking industry. As the cost of diesel increases, many businesses that run with little financial leeway find it hard to continue functioning. Diesel fuel costs can be minimized by planning the most efficient routes for transport, by keeping vehicles in top condition and by utilizing efficiency measures, such as aerodynamic attachments on trailers.

Labor

Unless you run a one-truck company, you will need to hire other people to drive your trucks, run your office and load and unload your goods. Many truckers are unionized and are paid quite well. Labor costs will represent a large percentage of your yearly budget when running a trucking company. Some companies employ their own drivers, while others subcontract to independent drivers and pay them as a separate company. A company that employs its own drivers is responsible for benefits and pensions as well as wages.

Intangibles

Licensing, business fees and insurance can take a substantial bite out of the budget of a transportation business. Commercial vehicles are treated differently than privately owned vehicles and need business licenses as well as licenses that allow them to be on the road. Trucks that are used within a single state are treated differently than trucks that are taken across state lines for commercial purposes. Liability insurance is essential for any transportation business, because of the potential for harm and injury to others is much greater than a singles vehicle.

 Marketing

A transportations company won't survive unless clients are aware of its existence and use its services. For this to happen, you need to market your company widely and maintain a high public profile. A marketing budget focuses on creating advertisements and developing relationships with other businesses. Because most transportation caters to large businesses rather than to the general public, a lot of the marketing for a transportation company involves solicitation within the industry. This may include advertisements in industry journals and attendance at trade shows, which all cost money.

Sales

Oh yes, let’s not forget the salesperson. Trying to get appointments, but getting voicemail, or no response to e-mails, or even worse can’t get past the gatekeeper at the front desk. If that isn't bad enough they have high expectations from management wanting to see numbers instead of good business.

So the next time somebody comes and says I can beat your current provider on price, ask yourself what they're not taking into consideration in running their business.

Letter from the President:

 Specialty Worldwide Logistics is a family owned and family-run business we live by the philosophy doing the right thing isn't always doing easy thing. We remained focused on our customers and our partners. We are committed to family values, community involvement and support of our military.

 The transportation industry has experienced extremely challenging times. Decreased tonnage shipped in the country has impacted shippers and motor carriers alike. It seems like every day there's a new company opening up saying we can save you money here and there, but in reality they're just looking to take advantage of anyone they can.

 Our passion is transportation. We provide a complete logistics program that is specifically designed for each customer. We are a non- asset-based company and we are partnering with approved carriers across the country and across the globe to provide the best transportation solution.

 Thank you for your support and I hope that we have the opportunity to learn more about your transportation needs. Our team can answer any questions and will work with you to design a solution that is right for you.

 Call us; we would like to earn your business.
