In that time, they shall handle your transport needs on an agreed upon manner. You will count on them to handle the hiring of the drivers, the upkeep of the fleet, and insurance needs, among other needs the service shall have.

The drivers can also wear your uniforms, which makes for a great impression on the clients out there. The trucks shall boost the company image out there. With such an agreement, you will have top of the line logistics services, without the hassle that goes into it.
