How do you know if you have hired the right logistics company?

You’ve realized that hiring a logistics company to take care of the storing and transporting of your goods is the smart thing to do but how do you know that you’ve got the right one? You don’t want to enter into an agreement with a company that won’t collect or deliver on time, a company that does not know how to handle or pack your fragile goods or a company that promises safe storage and then calls you two days later to tell you that your goods have been stolen. You know that things like this can ruin your business.

Here are a few tips to ensure you end up with the right logistics company:

  1. Do a proper background check. Search the Internet for reviews and talk to other companies who are in your line of business and are making use of the logistics service provider you’re thinking of hiring. If the reviews are good and the companies are happy, you know that you are about to enter into an agreement with a reputable company.
  2. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Ask the logistics company you’re thinking of hiring to explain their operating procedure from start to finish. What security measures do they have in place to ensure your goods arrive on time and intact? Where will your goods be stored? Is it in a safe area? Do they make use of security guards and alarm systems? Settle for nothing less than the answers you are looking for.
  3. Ask for written guarantees. Don’t put your trust in a verbal promise and a handshake. Also make sure that you properly read every piece of paper they ask you sign. If you can’t make head or tail of the contract, rather ask somebody like a lawyer to explain it to you before signing.

Follow these tips to ensure you that end up with the right logistics company. It is after all, your goods and not you that need to be taken for a ride! Contact NQ Logistics today for more information.
