Creating an Action Plan to Determine Load Profitability and Improve Your Margins

Thursday, July 29, 2021

Join TCA, SMC³, and Groendyke Transport at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 29 for a complimentary webinar to learn about the tanker truck segment’s unique cost challenges, and how tanker organizations can track and achieve profitability.

Key takeaways from this webinar: 

  • Defining round trips is a critical component of cost allocation to individual loads, to obtain the correct deadhead miles for single-load round trips, and to determine the cost allocation, based on the revenue contribution of each load, for multi-load round trips;
  • Stop and time-basis costs need to be recognized and not hidden in cost per mile;
  • Pump and Tank Wash costs need to be tied to the loads requiring them; and
  • Other extra costs, such as tolls and other accessorial services, need to be recognized and tied to individual load as well.
